If you think that your work contributes to the broader understanding of Global Environmental Change then you should probably have a go at filling in this survey.
The International Human Dimensions Programme on Global Environmental Change, working in partnership with UNESCO and the International Social Science Council, is trying to assess the extent to which the humanities and social sciences have developed programmes addressing Global Environmental Change, and what the priorities are.
That being said, this questionnaire is based on outdated assumptions about forms of knowledge, and excludes non-traditional academic knowledge including art, inhabitation-based forms of knowledge, and non-human forms of knowledge.
Another weakness is that it would appear to assume competition between academic disciplines, rather than collaboration.Â The ecoart perspective assumes collaboration at its heart.
Finally, the questionnaire appears to breaks up virtuous cycles of knowledge and action in favour of prioritisation for funding purposes.
ecoartscotland is a resource focused on art and ecology for artists, curators, critics, commissioners as well as scientists and policy makers. It includes ecoartscotland papers, a mix of discussions of works by artists and critical theoretical texts, and serves as a curatorial platform.
It has been established byÂ Chris Fremantle, producer and research associate withÂ On The Edge Research,Â Grayâ€™s School of Art, The Robert Gordon University. Fremantle is a member of a number of international networks of artists, curators and others focused on art and ecology.
