Social-ecological innovations

Technological and social innovations must become more sensitive to ecosystem dynamics and respect interacting planetary boundaries. Emerging technological and social innovations involve huge potential to improve our lives in a sustainable way, but only if we incorporate knowledge of social-ecological systems and planetary boundaries in framing their future development.

Social-ecological innovation is defined as technological and social innovation – including new strategies, concepts, ideas, institutions, and organizations – that enhance the capacity of social-ecological systems to generate bundles of essential ecosystem services. These have the potential to improve the capacity to learn from, respond to, and manage environmental feedback from dynamic ecosystems.
