The SEEKCommons (Socio-Environmental Knowledge Commons) research coordination network is led by partners at University of Notre Dame, Open Environmental Data Project (OEDP) and the HDF group. You can follow along and find more up-to-date information about the project at the SEEKCommons website.

SEEKCommons will adapt and apply open tools and methodologies to bridge long-standing divides between the social and environmental sciences and between action researchers and frontline communities. This network will overcome disciplinary barriers to open science and support activities that enable the sharing of skills, resources, and socio-environmental research products. 

Five key activities will include:

  1. Participatory research,
  2. In-person and virtual convenings,
  3. A fellowship program,
  4. A data facilitators consortium, and 
  5. A curriculum builder and resource hub.
