AIR logo

The IRC's Prof. Ullrich Kockel has been invited to join the Board of the AIR, an international network that aims to increase social-ecological resilience – the co-evolution of social-human and ecological systems - through connecting and supporting locally based innovations in participating regions and countries, emphasizing new kinds of collaboration across cultures, disciplines, sectors and national borders. 

Prof. Kockel, who leads the IRC's Sustainable Communities research group, said: "I am delighted to be asked to join this global network, which is an important intercultural initiative bringing together old wisdom and new knowledge to support life-sustaining ways of being." 

The Alliance is building an international network of resilience hubs, including the Common Good Food Hub in Scotland, and is working on an interdisciplinary research and publications programme.
