The project Collaborative remedies for fragmented societies – facilitating the collaborative turn in environmental decision-making (CORE), funded by Strategic Research Council at the Academy of Finland, studies and develops collaborative action in environmental planning and decision-making. The project is part of the SRC programme ‘Changing society and active citizenship’.

CORE builds on the notions of interdependence and collaborative governance as responses to complex societal problems. The project seeks practices for creating fair, efficient and knowledge-based solutions to complex problems related to environment and use of natural resources. The focus is in creating models for joint problem-solving in the Finnish context and supporting the capacities of different actors to use them.

In practice, the consortium works with tensions around land use, energy issues and use of natural resources. Models to be studied include negotiation models for local environmental disputes, collaborative governance of natural resources, facilitated processes of policy-making and preparation of regulations, and interactive, digitalising  knowledge practices.

The results support development of collaborative culture and practices in environmental decision-making and also in other fields. The models to be developed can serve, for example, the social and health sector and the regional government reform.
