Humankind is currently facing an unprecedented social and environmental crisis. Our task as scientists is to provide knowledge to society in order to reverse this situation by promoting a qualitative change in the society, without compromising cultural and natural life-support systems. We try to promote this transition through a range of research activities that explore the relationships between human behaviour, ecological systems and space-time scales in a complex world.
