  6. Reconstructing Sustainability Science

    By Thaddeus Miller

    Sustainability science is an interdisciplinary, problem-driven field that seeks to address fundamental questions on human-environment interactions.

It develops a foundation for a sustainability science that is solutions-oriented, aiming to enrich public reasoning and deliberation while also working to generate social and technological innovations for a more sustainable future. It provides an essential understanding of the complex relationship between science, social change and the normative dimensions of sustainability.
