Transformations to sustainability
Description of call
"Transformations to sustainability"

Climate change, environmental degradation and resource pressures have created unprecedented situations for societies worldwide. Today’s urgent challenges of global environmental change will require not only scientific advances and technological adjustments but also deep and enduring social change. A comprehensive new approach to research and action on global environmental change and sustainability is needed that promotes solutions that are at the same time ecologically sound, economically viable and socially just. A new approach to sustainability research from the angle of social transformation will require the active contribution and pro-active leadership from social sciences and humanities disciplines, in terms of bringing relevant existing knowledge, framing the research questions, designing and implementing the research, and helping to derive effective, equitable and durable solutions to global sustainability challenges with a genuine involvement of relevant societal stakeholder groups at all stages of the research and policy process.
