Communication Platform

Communication PlatformAddressing questions of high relevance to past societies and environments, the broad topical framework pursued by ROOTS ideally offers the opportunity to develop and test new approaches in science communication. The communication platform will provide an interface for knowledge transfer, addressing ROOTS and Kiel University scientific communities as well as external audiences, from school pupils to politicians and stakeholder groups. 

The Communication Platform builds on the Graduate School "Human Development in Landscapes" expertise and pursue a three-fold approach:

  1. Communication within the multidisciplinary ROOTS research teams, focusing on challenges and opportunities of inter- and transdisciplinary cooperation, and building explicit links between different research domains and levels of university teaching;
  2. Outreach and Education to develop and carry out different outreach and educational measures;
  3. Transfer of ROOTS research results into current discourses on environmental and societal development as well as natural and environmental heritage protection including the so-called ‘Raumplanung’.
