The 8th International Sustainability Transitions Conference (IST 2017) will devote special attention to the challenges confronting those wanting to take action and do more. What understanding and conclusions can transition scholars bring to the table, and what key theories and findings are yet to be developed and discovered?
In addition to researchers, the conference is also aimed at authorities and ministries, organisations working towards the UN's sustainability goals as well as companies that want to take the lead in sustainability transitions. Read more in an interview with the conference coordinator (in Swedish)
The IST 2017 conference program includes inspiring keynote lectures, panel debates and more than one hundred sessions of different types. The sessions are arranged in eleven different themes, which among others include Leadership and learning, Entrepreneurship, Transformation of cities, regions and industries and Politcs and policies.
