As a society we have to learn to live in a complex world of interdependent systems with high uncertainties and multiple legitimate interests. These complex and evolving systems require a new way of thinking about risk, uncertainty, ambiguity and ignorance. These systems require that we can think simultaneously of drivers and impacts of our actions across scales and barriers of space, time, culture, species and disciplinary boundaries.

Jeroen is a great connector, networker, seeing fast connections and patterns, open minded, and enthusiastic person about learning for sustainability. If he starts talking about the importance of new knowledge arrangements; what means good cooperation between social entrepreneurs, researchers, educators and other stakeholders, he can’t stop.
