19 juni 2019 @ 09:00 - 15:00

Sustainability transitions is a concept developed in research and policies that refers to large scale societal change needed to address persistent problems of unsustainability. The concept explains the mechanisms of inertia (institutions, power, politics, and routines) as well as disruptive change and how one can anticipate and adapt to these.
