Om boka

This Handbook is the first to offer a comprehensive discussion of Sustainability Science. It covers the major concepts and methodologies in sustainability science, the current practice of implementing them into academic programs, the process of institutionalization, and societal collaboration aimed at accelerating a shift to sustainability. The Handbook brings together experts from Sustainability Science academic programs around the world, such as the US, Germany, Japan, and Sweden, thus allowing comparisons of diverse experiences in different geographical, cultural, and historical contexts.
Edited by one of the leading scholars in the field, the Handbook explores many challenges linked to the task of developing a new field, in particular asking new questions, creating new concepts, frameworks, theory and methodology (in parts two and three) but also in contributing to increased understandings of the causes and consequences of un-sustainability (parts four and five) and thus the need for major social transitions to sustainability (parts four and five).


This unique contribution to a rapidly emerging field is an essential reference book for scholars and students of Sustainability Science.
