One key feature at IST2020 was the introduction of the role of Conference Ambassadors
They were in charge of harvesting key take-aways and reporting on the various parallel sessions. Moreover, Conference Ambassadors offered valuable inputs from the perspective of young researchers and their generation and functioned as “ice-breakers” in online discussions, thus contributing greatly to the success of the online-conference.
Our team of 13 Conference Ambassadors consisted of master’s students and graduates from a broad range of disciplines including geography, urban planning, ecological economics and socio-economics. Overall, the Conference Ambassadors produced 12 reports on key sessions of the conference, three visual recordings of the keynote speeches and two videos with interviews of IST2020 participants about their experiences with the conference. Last but not least, they authored and illustrated a brochure that introduces international sustainability transitions research from the perspectives of conference ambassadors.
