Transformation 2017. Aug/Sep Conference on Actioning Climate Change Scholarship
Conference Title: TRANSFORMATIONS: TRANSFORMATIONS IN PRACTICE
Where: Dundee, Scotland
When: Aug 28-Sep 2, 2017
The overarching theme of this conference is ‘sustainability transformations in practice’. Important advances about transformation across different disciplines are already emerging, such as from the arts, humanities, social science and different scientific fields, including social-ecological resilience research, social-technological transitions research, development studies, and research focusing on social innovation.
However, transformation is an inherently practical endeavor, and many of the most exciting innovations for change are emerging from practice, such as changes in routines, policies, norms and behaviours and wider attempts to encourage change. This can be include diverse approaches that aim to enhance adaptation to and mitigation of climate change, address biodiversity, social justice, water, food security challenges and many other aspects relating to sustainability.
