At its meeting on 20 December 2023, the Board of the Swiss Academic Society for Environmental Research and Ecology (saguf) unanimously elected Dr Claudia Zingerli as its new Co-President. Our warmest congratulations! With her extensive experience and many years of commitment to saguf, Claudia will play a key role in the implementation of our new strategy.
Our mission since 1972 has been to shape transformative research and teaching and to intensify inter- and transdisciplinary exchange. In the face of increasingly critical global social-ecological challenges, saguf is working more than ever to promote fundamental social change towards sustainability.
To this end, over the next five years we will focus on four strategic thrusts:
- Reflecting on and further developing methods in sustainability-oriented research and teaching;
- Promoting dialogue and collaboration between different generations of sustainability-oriented scientists;
- Building strong partnerships in the science system to strengthen the impact of sustainability-oriented research;
- Increasing the visibility of saguf in practice and intensify the links between science and practice.
