Key-note Eveline van Leeuwen “Urban and Regional Sustainability Transitions” at Regional Studies Winterconference 2022, London

November 10, 2022

Shifting towards sustainable regional and urban futures is the defining challenge of the moment. The growing disillusionment with democracy in ‘left behind’ places, the worsening climate crisis, the series of global economic shocks and the increasingly volatile geopolitical context add to the urgency of the sustainability transitions agenda. This interdisciplinary panel – bringing together leading scholars working across the disciplines of geography, economics, and urbanism – will critically evaluate the state of those transitions and debate new ways for regions and cities to accelerate them.
