Someone once told me that only scientists talk about implementing projects in the “real” world, for all others that “real” world is an absolute given. Unfortunately, there is a often a great lack of reality in scientific projects and higher political circles, even if they claim to be advancing socio-ecological transformations. I argue for more place-sensitive approaches where transdisciplinarity is a must and a sometimes radical change of perspective is needed to aim at systemic change and not just efficiency improvements. Such perspectives have and will more often rise from places of necessity.
