The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) is committed to supporting research to advance understanding of the competencies that are critical for socio-environmental (S-E) synthesis. SESYNC’s first education focused Theme, Learning to Integrate Across Natural and Social Sciences, called for research to advance our understanding of:

  1. How undergraduate and graduate students learn to integrate data, concepts, techniques, approaches, tools, perspectives, theories, etc. from natural and social sciences to understand environmental problems and inform solutions, and
  2. Pedagogies that support the development of this cognitive ability in a socio-environmental context at the undergraduate or graduate level.
