Green Out of the Blue, or How (Not) to Deal with Overfed Oceans: Coastal eutrophication has been a recurrent problem in Western France, that has escaped all isolated efforts to cope with it (plus a little more explanation….)

Our project aims to redesign research for SES adaptation to coastal eutrophication towards transdisciplinary research with the following properties: (i) acknowledging its political nature, (ii) fully integrating the abilities and concerns of non-academic partners, who cumulate various experience-based knowledge of this environmental issue, (iii) inclusive, i.e. citizen-friendly, welcoming out-ofthe-box thinking, and careful of concerned groups inaudible in public debates and arenas. Our central hypotheses are that (i) drawing lessons from commonly shared framing of the past trajectory is critical to devise a sustainable future for SES confronted by long-lasting environmental damage; (ii) ensuring articulation between eutrophication management and integrated transition goals of coastal SES is a prerequisite to move forward and achieve SES sustainability; and (iii) in a transformative perspective, research must move from “normal science” to accompanying research, by creating transformative spaces and developing intense interactions among scientists, concerned stakeholders and institutions.

Our consortium is composed of Valerie VIAUD, INRAe Rennes (UMR SAS), coordinator, Jean-Marc DOUGUET TESS/ESE, in addition to participants from AMURE (CNRS, UMR 6308), ARENES (IFREMER, UMR 6051), CEVA, Université de Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines (EA CHCSC), G-EAU (CIRAD, UMR), LABERS (EA, Université de Bretagne Occidentale), LEMAR (CNRS, UMR 6539).
