The focus of this Special Issue is on cross-disciplinary discussions that reflect the ongoing and rapidly increasing societal, economic, and democratic transformations. These transitions are being driven by interconnections between environmental, political, and technological changes. There is a need to understand the broader systemic effects. The results are concepts such as knowledge democracy and innovation democracy, and an interest in applying governance for their implementation.
The currently arising global challenges include shifts in labor, work, and education, the need for interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches in artistic and scientific research in order to promote democracy and the quality of democracy, fostering new socially creative environments, addressing climate change and global warming, enhancing gender relations and other references of equality, addressing implications of an aging society, managing migration, governing digital transformation and artificial intelligence, understanding the impact of technology on society and the economy and democracy, fostering future innovation, embracing new economic models, and activating art for societal transformation.
These radical transformation and transition processes will have far-reaching consequences for the sciences, arts, society, economy, and democracy. To elevate these challenges into productive solutions, we must broaden our understanding and adopt interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches to reflective thinking, profound problem-solving, and the making of sustainable decisions.
In summary, contributions are welcome that reflect on knowledge democracy and innovation democracy, with wider ramifications for democracy, politics and innovation, and social integration in the contemporary world.
