When Loorbach met Hopkins: on Transition and research
By rob hopkins 9th September 2016 Knowledge & learning
How might research best support, document and inform both the Transition movement and societal transitions more widely? Over the last couple of days, at Wuppertal University in Germany, a conference called the International Sustainability Transitions Conference has been taking place. One of its plenary sessions was called ‘Research and Practice Perspectives on the Governance of Urban Transitions’, and featured Derk Loorbach, director of the Dutch Research Institute for Transition (DRIFT) and Professor of Socio-economic Transitions at the Faculty of Social Science, both at Erasmus University Rotterdam, and Transition Network’s Rob Hopkins. In case you couldn’t make it, here we present the full audio of the session as well as both sets of slides, so you can relive the experience in your own home. Enjoy.
