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
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.
Deadline for submission of short papers:
- Tuesday January 14, 2020, 23:59 Central European Time (CET)
We are looking forward to receiving your contributions!
