Conference Tracks

The 2nd Global Transdiscipliarity Conference is organized in thematic tracks focusing on individual aspects of the current poly crisis and the proposed potential of transdisciplinarity or other forms of science practice collaboration to deal with these challenges.

  • Tracks will convene online or in person in decentralized working groups in the weeks running up to the main event, discussing their input for the marketplace of ideas and the plenary sessions.
  • Representatives of the tracks are expected to participate in person in the main conference in Mustafapaşa to represent their track in the marketplace of ideas and plenary sessions and to report back to the track participants during the feedback sessions.
  • Personal participation by as many contributors to individual tracks as possible is encouraged and appreciated, though we ask track organizers to make use of all forms of local or online meeting options in order to reduce the environmental impact of the event and to offer inclusive options of participation to all, regardless of geographical location, financial means or any special needs. 
  • Tracks will be presented by their representatives in the marketplace of ideas, an open space opened at the first evening of the conference on 26 June 2024 and remaining in place during the whole conference. 
  • Tracks will be presented by their representatives in the plenary sessions on the first (27) and second (28) day of the conference. Plenary sessions will be broadcast online for all participants. 
  • Tracks will hold a feedback session after the first plenary on 27 June to discuss the input from the other tracks and the general discussion in the plenary and provide feedback their representative will present during the second plenary on 28 June. 
  • Representatives from all tracks are heartily invited to participate in the two day cultural and nature experience on 29 and 30 June and in the interwoven Open Working Group on the Integration of Functional and Spiritual Transdisciplinarity
