    Dear colleagues,

    With this email, we are encouraging you to submit to the Special Issue "Change Agency in Sustainability Transitions" in Sustainability by June 1st 2020. Please circulate to interested colleagues.

    The topic of agency in making the world a 'better place' is increasingly relevant, if not urgent. The aim of this Special Issue is to invigorate and, where possible, to integrate the debate on agency in sustainability transitions. In this respect, the Special Issue covers institutional actors, organizational actors, individual-level actors, as well as collective forms of sustainability agency.

    In this light, we encourage submissions:
    * From across the disciplinary bases studying sustainability agency, be it environmental management, sustainability science, corporate social responsibility, management and organization, environmental psychology, sociology, law, political science, economics, or anthropology;
    * Conceptualizing sustainability (change) agency via theoretical development and synthesis;
    * Providing fresh empirical insights, and/or thorough reviews of existing bodies of knowledge, and/or theoretical developments on sustainability (change) agency;
    * From emerging and leading researchers in the study of sustainability agency, representing facets of sustainability agency from across the globe;
    * Studying sustainability agency at individual, group, organizational, and/or institutional levels of analysis

    Please, find more information behind the following link:
