The 10th annual International Sustainability Transitions Conference (IST 2019) will address the theme “Accelerating sustainability transitions”. The conference will encourage researchers and practitioners to examine obstacles to transitions processes and strategies to speed up the transformation of systems of production and consumption. It points to the importance of visions — of improved mobility systems, agricultural and food systems, buildings, cities and rural communities – to coordinate efforts and mobilize change. The conference also raises the challenge of mapping out concrete pathways that can link the present with desirable futures and emphasises navigation of the inevitable conflicts that accompany any serious efforts at societal change.
