TIPPING+ Project Meeting in Athens: Key messages and takeways

The second in-person meeting of the TIPPING+ project was completed successfully in Athens, Greece last week with the participation of more than 30 partners from all over the world. The meeting took place from the 21st to the 23rd of June and was organised in Glyfada region in Athens.

The aim of the meeting was to set ground for generating a step-wise scientific advance from social sciences for the understanding of Socio-Ecological Tipping Points (SETPs) in energy transitions in Coal and Carbon Intensive Regions (CCIRs) in the form of an empirically grounded novel Social Theory.

During the three-day meeting, interdisciplinary discussions across the TIPPING+ cases studies were facilitated, key points of the scientific progress developed so far were analysed through interactive and creative sessions and next steps regarding dissemination and communication were, also, highlighted.

Through presenting the key insights of the TIPPING+ case studies, commonalities across the case studies were discussed based on the main components (mainstream, on-stream and off-stream narratives), showcased in the case studies’ posters. Thus, collaboration between the partners was promoted, aiming at elaborating an overarching framework of social change supported by empirical evidence and co-developing regional strategies based on case studies results.

Besides, next steps on how to communicate the research results of the case studies to policy makers, scientific community etc. and how to reach out to key stakeholders, were thoroughly analysed.
