April 4-5, 2019: 4th NEST Conference 3

The Network of Early Career Researchers in Sustainability Transitions (NEST) is excited to announce the 4th Annual NEST Conference (#4THNEST), with the theme “Transitions to where? Shared values and visions for
sustainability transitions” to be held in Lisbon, Portugal on April 4-5, 2019.

With all this talk about transitions, this conference will reflect on this concept and delve into what we are actually trying to attain at the end of the day. “Transitions to where?” hence spans the whole spectrum of conceptualizing societal transitions, from concrete and clearly defined visions to a broader focus on large-scale normative movements.

The conference will be filled with two enriching days of keynote lectures, discussion sessions and interactive workshops. Following the tradition of the previous NEST conferences held in London (Greenwich), Lausanne (EPFL) and Utrecht (UU), this conference will give early career researchers the unique opportunity to present their work-in-progress and to get feedback from their peers as well as senior researchers. Inspiring keynote sessions and an interactive workshop format will provide space to further discuss and reflect on the conference theme.
