Call for Abstracts Transformations 2017: Transformations in Practicepublished: October 18, 2016
The Transformations 2017 Conference will take place in Dundee, Scotland, between the 30th of August and the 1st of September 2017.
A ‘mass transformative practice’ event is to be held at T2017. This will include all conference participants engaging in professionally facilitated dialogue by the International Futures Forum and others using the Three Horizons futures approach. The session will focus on understanding how current knowledge production and use systems need to change in order to accelerate learning about how to make transformative change happen. The outcome will be a ‘map’ of how such a transition to new ways of developing knowledge can occur. This will result in a research paper that will have been developed collaboratively, and authored by, all conference participants.
The organizers warmly invite submissions for presentations, practice sessions and workshops from any practical sector, organization or academic discipline interested in being part of the dialogue that encourage significant changes towards enhancing environmental and social sustainability related to one of the broad themes of the conference.
The main theme of the conference is ‘Sustainability transformations in practice’
The six sub themes are:
- Conceptualising sustainability transformations
- Designing transformation and transformative forms of design
- Conditions and practice for transformation
- Research for transformation
- Creativity and innovation for enhancing thinking and practice of transformation
- Linking practice with policy
