Workshop on Low-carbon regional and urban transitions and practices, 15.-17.11.2023, Trier University

The Sustainability Transitions Lab at Trier University invites early career researchers to an interdisciplinary workshop.

The event aims to bring together early career researchers at the master, PhD and postdoc levels, discuss theoretical and empirical works in regional and local research on low-carbon transitions and practices, and initiate long-term cooperation between the participants.

The workshop provides an interdisciplinary platform for scholars from different fields as research on climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies has become increasingly prominent in various scientific disciplines over the last decade. We particularly welcome contributions engaging with alternative approaches to local, urban, and regional development, including but not restricted to climate justice and politics, post-growth and diverse economies, environmental governance, and sustainable planning.

The workshop is envisioned as an open forum with interdisciplinary dialogue featuring short interventions such as elevator pitches, paper discussions with an upfront reading of the article, oral presentations, moderated discussions, and room for other creative formats the participants would like to bring forward. We highly encourage applicants to present work from all stages of a project's lifecycle, from first ideas on a new project, theoretical/methodological frameworks and reflections and initial results to completed research projects.

Application is closed
