2nd International Conference on Sustainability Transitions

Diversity, plurality and change: breaking new grounds in sustainability transitions research

June 13-15, 2011, Lund University, Lund, Sweden

The Lund University Centre for Sustainability Studies (LUCSUS), the Centre for Innovation, Research and Competence in the Learning Economy (CIRCLE) at Lund University and the Sustainability Transitions Research Network (STRN) invite you to the 2nd International Conference on Sustainability Transitions.

The first international conference on Sustainability Transitions, held in Amsterdam June 2009, brought together a rapidly growing community of researchers and practitioners interested in socio‐technical transitions and eco‐innovation. It emphasized the growing internationalization of sustainability transitions research, not only as a research community but also in terms of its research agenda. The diversity of participants indicated considerable enthusiasm for new connections within the transitions research community and engagements with other relevant disciplines or communities. The goal of the second international conference on Sustainability Transitions is to follow up on these developments and to further our understanding of sustainability transitions by facilitating a dialogue between ongoing research activities, new areas of inquiry, and alternative approaches to sustainability transitions. Hence the theme of this conference: ‘Diversity, plurality and change: breaking new grounds in sustainability transitions research’
