In 2020 a tipping point may have been crossed on how societies worldwide deal with multiple overlapping crises. On an unprecedented scale we see groups and communities mobilizing to re-imagine and transform the pre-pandemic systems which led to current vulnerabilities, risks, and unsustainable practices. This challenging but also fertile moment calls for urgent knowledge synthesis able to enact positive tipping points and tipping interventions towards new regenerative development trajectories.

The TRANSFORMATIONS 2021 Conference will showcase latest developments in research and practice of transformations towards sustainability, support and celebrate transdisciplinary learning networks for new collective international initiatives.

Four streams will structure the event:
·       Stream 1: Transformative arts and culture
·       Stream 2: Transformative economies and organizations
·       Stream 3: Transformative science, action-oriented knowledge and governance
·       Stream 4: Enabling positive tipping points in socio-climate, energy, water and life-support coupled systems

Organisers particularly welcome contributions on Arts, design and cultural transformations; Transformations theories and ethics; Systems of transformative solutions;  Gender, race and converging inequalities; Activism and governance; Digitalisation and emerging tecnologies; Alternative economies; Transforming financial systems and organizations;  Community development and international cooperation; Catalytic processes of 2020; Integrated and pluralistic learning, and Synthesis and review papers on transformations
