The lecture series on social-ecological transformation aims at exploring and reflecting on theoretical and methodological approaches to the profound societal transformation needed for addressing the multiple crises of our society, environment, and economy. The goal of the lectures is to better understand the processes of transformative change while focusing on the governance and politics of transformation, the role of social scientists in transformation processes and on the conflicting concepts and imaginaries of transformation expressed therein.

The lectures are open to a diverse audience, including researchers, academics and students, practitioners, policy makers and all interested members of the public.

The in-presence lectures will be held in the speaker’s choice of language. Further information can be found under the program for each event.

The series is organised by the Center for Climate Change and Transformation and the Center for Advanced Studies within the framework of the project "Transformation pathways".
