This article collection in the journal Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability seeks contributions that synthesize what we know, and what we don’t yet know, about social transformations in the context of diverse sustainability challenges.


The State of Knowledge on Social Transformations to Sustainability

Edited by Susi Moser, Sarah Moore, Lizzie Sayer

 

Sustainability research is increasingly concerned with the rapid and profound transformations of society that will be needed to both minimize and adapt to the impacts of global environmental change. This special issue is gathering, on an ongoing basis, articles that synthesize what we know, and what we don’t yet know, about social transformations in the context of diverse sustainability challenges. The papers may focus on social transformations in relation to particular economic sectors or regional or cultural contexts; alternatively, they may consider cross-cutting, theoretical dimensions of social transformation, or methodological issues in researching transformations to sustainability. Over time, the papers collected in this special issue will represent a compendium of current knowledge on social transformations to sustainability of relevance to researchers, practitioners and policy makers.
