Canadian Symposium on Sustainability Transitions

We at the DLSPH Healthier Cities and Communities Hub are pleased to be co-sponsoring the 2017 Canadian Sustainability Transitions Symposium, along with the Chaire de la recherche sur la transition écologique de l’UQAM, the Centre de recherche Organisations, Sociétés et Environnement (OSE), and the WHO Collaborating Centre and Health Promotion. The theme of this year’s conference is “Sustainability Transitions and Social Transformation”. 

The aim of our symposium is to explore theory and practice in Sustainability Transitions within the Canadian context, by supporting a dialogue between actors involved in Sustainability Transitions projects and research on Sustainability Transitions and its wide range of perspectives and approaches. More precisely, the aim is to showcase the role of this field of research for social transformation in Canada, and connect researchers from the field of Sustainability Transitions with those in other areas of sustainability research, thus encouraging and building opportunities for cross-fertilization. The aim is also for researchers, students and practitioners to exchange on action research in Sustainability Transitions.

The objectives of the symposium are as follows:

  • Explore the theory and practice of Sustainability Transitions and its application to social transformation in Canada
  • Create opportunities for cross-fertilization across linguistic, disciplinary and geographical barriers in the study of transitions
  • Encourage dialogue between practitioners and researchers on how to make transitions happen

We look forward to having you with us for this Canadian Sustainability Transitions Symposium! Click here to register.
