Building a Knowledge Community

Over the past 3 years of the project, the MultiTip team has been actively building a knowledge community on resilience in globally connected resource systems like the Lake Victoria SES. This community was built not only among partners, governing bodies, other stakeholders and end-users, but also among fellow researchers, students and the general public.

We achieve this using a variety of platforms and media:

  • Prof. Timo Goeschl appeared in a live broadcast on ‘Systems at Tipping Point’ on public television (December 2020). This was watched by around 300,000 viewers in Germany (AGF, 2020) and led to numerous post- broadcast inquiries from the general public.

  • The project video is posted on YouTube.

  • The Mental Model Mapping Tool is available for free download on the App store and Google Play Store. It also has its own website, where it can be used online. The tool has already been downloaded more than 600 times. It was developed by Heidelberg University, the TAFIRI and Lambdaforge as part of the MultiTip project.

  • We published a seasonal dedicated newsletter and a few social media posts.

  • In total, our team gave 14 presentations at international scientific conferences and 12 talks in the University (two of them at the Heidelberg Center for the Environment).

  • We initiated a one-year multidisciplinary group on Tipping Points at the Marsilius-Kolleg at Heidelberg University.

  • Our team members lectured on the project to graduate and undergraduate students in 4 courses.

  • MultiTip was invited by 2 non-German universities to talk about the outcomes of the research project.

  • We conducted 6 webinars and workshops on social science research methods for tipping point research and data analysis.

  • Our members trained around 10 junior researchers in the partner countries.

  • The output of MultiTip also consists of peer- reviewed publications and discussion papers as contributions to the psychological, economic, and interdisciplinary literature (many co-authored with researchers from the Lake Victoria region).
