What is WEGO-ITN?
This innovative and path breaking project will help local communities to build resilient, equitable and sustainable futures.
- It will tackle socio-ecological challenges linked to policy agendas.
- It will provide research that demonstrates to policy makers how communities actively sustain and care for their environment and community well-being.
Ultimately, WEGO-ITN will collectively provide important guides to strategies of resilience and sustainability that are required for meeting the SDGs.
Funded by the European Union, the Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie WEGO network is hosting 15 PhD researchers, creating the first European ITN on Feminist Political Ecology.
