Transformation towards a sustainable society : key intervention areas

  • Social innovations, which transform resource intensive routines and practices into low-resource ones, combined with socio-technically designed transition paths, which are created around sustainability and environmental criteria, are milestones for implementation and diffusion of SCP (Sustainable Consumption and Production). This paper analyses such processes based on eight key components in order to evaluate and explain transformation and transition towards a sustainable lifestyle. Actors on all levels of society are included in this approach, creating a whole framework.

Actors on all levels of society are included in this approach, creating a whole framework. Global megatrends, such as climate change, demographic change or resource scarcity will be put into relation with current policies and production trends, which play an important role for the development of transition pathways and future scenarios. This will enable us to work out guidelines and ideas on how to create a more sustainable society specifically.show moreshow less

Die Publikationsstrategien der OMICS Group werden öffentlich kontrovers diskutiert (Stichwort: Predatory Journals). Die Geschäftsleitung des Wuppertal Instituts hat daher im Juni 2018 entschieden - auch unabhängig von der bis dahin vom Institut praktizierten Einzelprüfung der Journals - nicht mehr in Zeitschriften der OMICS Group zu veröffentlichen.
