Research Sustainability

In the final measure, sustainability asks whether the technological and institutional arrangements fashioned by human societies are consistent with the long-term thriving of both humanity and the natural environment. Cutting across all of our research areas, CSPO’s work focuses on the development of promising strategies for promoting sustainable outcomes: strategies for critically evaluating the evidentiary basis of sustainability research and policy, for imagining and envisioning more sustainable futures, for transforming socio-technological systems toward sustainable outcomes, and for engaging with stakeholders and harnessing diverse knowledge systems to foster processes of sustainable social and technological innovation and development.
