Mission and aims

To bring about a more sustainable development important changes in production and consumption systems will be required. A basic question is how to produce and consume energy and materials in a more sustainable way and how to realize such transformations. Core 4 seeks to understand the complex society-environment interactions, to identify driving forces for change, to explore the feasibility of development trajectories, and to evaluate and design new societal arrangements for sustainable development. Evaluation and design criteria encompass the efficacy, efficiency, responsiveness, openness, legitimacy and justice of change strategies and arrangements.
