    Abstract : This thesis adopts a complex systems approach to investigate the dynamic emergence of sustainable environmental governance and management systems in multiple contexts in Europe. Accelerating rates of environmental degradation across the world have called the legitimacy of previous environmental governance and management arrangements into question. READ MORE

  2. 2. Navigating Sustainability Transformations: Backcasting, transdisciplinarity and social learning

    Author : Johan Holmén; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; backcasting; transformations; systems change; social learning; Education for Sustainable Development ESD ; Sustainability; transitions; reflexive governance; transdisciplinarity;

    Abstract : Complex and persistent sustainability challenges necessitate transformations into futures that are fundamentally different to what was before. Such change processes cannot be planned in traditional ways; they require reflexive modes of governing where we collectively learn how to navigate uncharted terrain while exploring it. READ MORE

  3. 3. Sustainability Transitions in Established Industries : The case of European Commercial Transport Vehicles

    Author : Behbood Borghei; Thomas Magnusson; Lars Coenen; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Sociotechnical transitions; Multilevel Perspective; System Innovations; Environmental Innovation; Systems of Innovation; Institutions; Environmental policy; Environmental regulation;

    Abstract : With the increasing trends in trade of goods and services as well as the expansion of road infrastructure and networks, commercial road transport has dominated a significant share of inland and urban logistics in the world and particularly in Europe. This includes not only the basic supply of citizens’ needs through long-haul traffic and short-distance city trucks but also by providing urban services such as courier delivery, household waste  pickup and refuse collection as well as passengers movements by public bus transport and inter-city coach transit.

    Abstract : Sustainability challenges including climate change, social injustice, resource depletion and biodiversity loss are becoming increasingly apparent. These challenges can be understood as partly resulting from unsustainable socio-technical systems in society, assumed to require transitions to become sustainable in time. READ MORE

  5. 5. Designing for sustainability practices : RE-DO Design Doings, Strategies and Postures
