The Basque Centre for Climate Change (BC3) offers a 3-year postdoc position, starting on December 2023 as part of the research project BIOTraces – Biodiversity and Transformative Change for Plural and Nature-Positive Societies (GA: 101081923), funded by the European Commission under the call HORIZON-CL6-2022-BIODIV-01-09.
The project BIOTraCes develops knowledge, tools and novel approaches that enable transformative changes necessary for achieving a nature-positive society. Focused on analysing the challenges and lock-ins which undermine the proper implementation of the nature-based solutions in the territories (such as sociocultural and political variables), this project aims to contribute to more inclusive, effective and just public policies, local strategies and corporate concerns on biodiversity aligned with the European Green Deal and SDGs. The project will engage with diverse stakeholder networks in 9 European- based biodiversity initiatives in high-impact sectors – agriculture & food, forestry, water, and urbanisation.
Among the nine case studies, one case study centres around formation of values about nature in early education and the role of greening schools. The case study will be in the city of Vitoria-Gasteiz (European Green Capital 2012) in the Basque Country, in collaboration with the Centre for Environmental Studies of the city. The case study, as the other eight cases, involves transdisciplinary approaches with active involvement of a diversity of stakeholders to coproduce new applicable and solutions-oriented knowledge.
