We are excited to announce the 14th annual International Sustainability Transitions conference organized by the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development. This year’s conference theme is ‘Responsibility and Reflexivity in Transitions‘. As the first in-person conference in 3 years, this gathering constitutes a special and important moment of reflection for our community.
The IST is the central event of the international transitions research community and is organized annually by different partners on behalf of the Sustainability Transitions Research Network (STRN). STRN comprises more than 1500 international researchers from various disciplines and produces more than 500 publications in specialist journals every year. The research network and the annual conference address the question of how the transition to sustainability can succeed through co-evolutionary changes and innovations in socio-technical systems.
