These fora are cross-disciplinary in their scope, a meeting point for natural and social scientists, researchers and practitioners, professionals and community representatives. Our times call for interdisciplinary and holistic approaches. As the challenges to our human and planetary existence become less capable of being addressed by purely personal, corporate, local or short term solutions, so too narrowness of thinking will no longer suffice. Of course, we should continue to pursue careful, finely grained, locally nuanced and deeply grounded knowledge and social practices of sustainability. Such perspectives are, if anything, more critical than ever. But increasingly these need also to be situated in the context of longer, broader and deeper views.
