We are excited to announce that the 7th NEST Conference will take place in Lyon, France!
Abstract submission deadline: January 15, 2022
The conference will be held under the theme “Global Sustainability Transitions: Towards Collaboration among Early Career Researchers”. The organizers believe that tackling global crises requires global research perspectives, and the Sustainability Transition field is primarily dominated by work from the Global North. Together with you, we want to take a step towards bridging this gap. The two-day conference aims to serve as a platform for Ph.D. students and postdoctoral researchers to help understand and address the present and future challenges of sustainability transitions globally. Next to welcoming submissions that address these structural inequalities and uneven distribution of resources across geographies, we also invite submissions over a wide range of theoretical and empirical topics in the transitions field.
This includes, but is not limited to, understanding transitions; power, agency and politics; governing transitions; civil society, culture, and social movements; businesses and industries; transitions in practice and everyday life; geography of transitions; ethical aspects; and methodologies. We expect a range of interesting sessions, keynotes from diverse academic perspectives, and creative formats to facilitate exchange.
The host university for the conference will be École Normale Supérieure (ENS) of Lyon and in line with the theme, we have opted for a hybrid format (online+on-site) to enable accessibility for participants worldwide, especially for the growing transition community from the global south. For continuously updated information on the conference please visit our website here. The full Call for Abstracts can be found here. Please submit your Abstract (max. 400 words) and a short biography of all authors (max. 150 words) via our abstract submission system here.
The deadline for submission is the 15th January 2022 and the communication of the submission outcomes will be mid-February 2022.
We are also accepting abstracts for session contributions more generally; if you would like to run a workshop, panel discussion, or contribute through another interesting format, please also reach out via email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking forward to receiving your contributions!
