Elementa's Sustainability Transitions domain welcomes contributions that advance knowledge on shifting society-environment interactions to sustainability - to a world in which human beings and other life flourish in diverse social and environmental contexts. Transitions to sustainability entail changes in people's interactions with each other and with the environment at local to global scales. Societies have insufficient knowledge of changes that can effectively promote sustainability transitions, and of the causal mechanisms involved. Navigating these transitions involves different sectors of society, ways of knowing, research approaches, and forms of creative expression. Therefore, a primary purpose of this domain is to bridge boundaries among disciplines, geographies, cultures, and institutions, and between scholars and practitioners. We encourage submissions from scholars in the social and natural sciences and humanities, and practitioners, innovators, and leaders who are forging ahead with strategies to shift towards sustainability.
