NEST Webinar Series: Sustainability Transitions

The aim of the NEST Webinar Series is to provide an introduction to and discuss key concepts in the field ins sustainability transitions, as well as to address current developments. In the beginning we cover general concepts of sustainability transitions research. Later we will go more into detail. 
In this webinar series, we aim to facilitate both the online dialogue between practitioners, early career researchers and senior researchers in the field, as well as creating a platform where the recordings of the webinar will be stored and can be watched later again. We will do this via YouTube and after the first webinar the YouTube channel can be reached via the NEST twitter (@TransitionsNEST) and the NEST blog (
