Future Earth Systems of Sustainable Consumption and Production Online Conference 2022

Transitioning to Systems of Sustainable Consumption and Production: From Knowledge to Action

The Systems of Sustainable Consumption and Production Knowledge – Action Network invites proposals for sessions and papers to the online symposium Transitioning to Systems of Sustainable Consumption and Production: From Knowledge to Action, 8-20 November 2022.

The need for systems of sustainable consumption and production is increasingly urgent, now more than ever. Far-reaching changes are required, but many challenges remain: How to transition to SSCP, build resilient, zero-impact industries and governance, overcome systemic inequality and injustice, and integrate new technologies, policies, and practices into everyday life? The SSCP KAN’s role is to provide a platform to tackle these challenges in a way that leads to real-world action and impact. This conference will be an opportunity to meet these challenges by showcasing examples of bridging research and knowledge production with implementation, education, and action. You are invited to join the discussion!

Call for sessions proposals

Ideally, we ask for sessions that showcase the cutting-edge of SSCP knowledge and action. We highly encourage session organizers to include the voices of practitioners, stakeholders, and non-academic collaborators. SSCP KAN WGs are expected to take a leading role in organizing sessions on relevant topics.

Possible sessions might feature…

  • …findings from transdisciplinary or action-research SSCP projects
  • …diverse perspectives on SCP that follow different ways of knowing
  • …innovative entrepreneurs/business models
  • …art and mixed media components
  • …different formats (ie. workshops, interactive methods, discussion) for sessions welcome

Session proposals should include the names and affiliations of the session organizers and speakers, the title of the session, a session abstract, individual presenter abstracts, and any additional information on session format or technical needs.

Paper proposals should be no more than a single A4 page and contain the appropriate names and affiliations, title of the paper, a paper abstract, and any additional information on session format or technical needs.

All submissions should be made via Conference Maker. Submission and participation in the conference are completely free of charge. Upload all session proposals by June 14th, 2022.
