Transition Management, Action Research and Actor Roles

Understanding local sustainability transitions


You are warmly invited to the public PhD defense of Julia Wittmayer on Thursday the 8th of December at Erasmus University Rotterdam. In her thesis Julia Wittmayer focusses on how complex and large scale societal challenges impact the local scale, what kind of responses are triggered and how communities at the local scale can be empowered through engaged research to find their own solutions. To do so, the thesis zooms in on one specific locality in the Netherlands faced with such persistent social, economic and ecological challenges: a neighbourhood in the South of Rotterdam, Carnisse.
