Call for papers: 2020 EGOS Colloquium on Sustainability Transitions: Bridging Systems and Organizational Perspectives to Tackle Grand Challenges

Together with my colleagues Taran Thune (University of Oslo) and Jochen Markard ( ETH Zurich), I am convening a track on “Sustainability Transitions: Bridging Systems and Organizational Perspectives to Tackle Grand Challenges” on the forthcoming EGOS Colloquium in Hamburg in July 2020.  

Introduction to the theme

We live in a world facing a variety of grand challenges connected to environmental and societal sustainability, including food, water and energy security, climate change, natural disasters, poverty and inequality. How societies and organizations deal with such challenges, and commit to developing more sustainable futures, while discontinuing unsustainable businesses and practices is a key concern and research topic (Ferraro et al., 2015; Geels et al., 2017; George et al., 2016; Markard et al., 2012).
 
This sub-theme will bring together scholars who study grand sustainability challenges and transformation from different perspectives, including systems and organizations. We are particularly interested in contributions that explore new approaches, perspectives, and methods.
