The area Science-Society Platforms facilitates and strengthens connections between science, policy, and society under the umbrella topics of climate change and sustainability. This is done via active engagement in existing political forums (e.g., Climate Action in National and International Processes) as well as the coordination and management of dedicated multi-stakeholder platforms in local (Brandenburg Sustainability Platform and Sustainability Council), national (Science Platform Sustainability 2030), and international (Global Sustainability Strategy Forum) contexts. The area Science-Society Platforms works to build communicative bridges between different groups of societal stakeholders, including those that have had limited interactions to date - as exemplified by the work of Art-Science Cooperations for Sustainability. Following the RIFS approach, the work of Science-Society Platforms emphasizes multi-directional communication and mutual learning between the networks and RIFS researchers. The area has a central role in establishing and deepening strategic cooperations for RIFS, with the aim of enhancing RIFS's impact in advancing and guiding processes of transformative change towards sustainable development.
