Who we are

We are the international network of scholars interested in sustainability transitions, advancing transition scholarship through a program of knowledge building, education, exchange and outreach.

Sustainability transitions are major shifts in established industries, socio-technical systems, and societies toward more sustainable modes of production and consumption.

Our world is facing multiple sustainability crises from climate change to biodiversity collapse. Conventional approaches have made limited progress in resolving these grand challenges.
