Collective Self-Regulation in Complex Social-Ecological Systems (ARC Discovery Project administered by the University of Melbourne) (2016–2018)

Sustainable human uses of natural resources are central to meeting contemporary challenges to humanity such as deforestation and climate change. However, the complexity of the social and ecological interdependences tests the human capacity for collective self-regulation ¿ ordinary citizens¿ regulation of their own behaviours for a greater good. The project aims to investigate the importance of establishing a common ground for collective selfregulation, the process of common ground formation in complex social-ecological systems, and how best to achieve this critical condition for sustainable ecological practices with a view to informing public discourse and policy making for sustainable living.
