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.

The Network

Knowledge building, education, exchange and outreach. All individuals engaged in transitions research or practice are welcome to join the network.

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

Innovative Ideas to Tackle Sustainability Crises

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