Pathways, scenarios and backcasting for sustainable and low-carbon lifestyles: Comparing methods, cases and results

On 7-8 October, the InContext consortium, in collaboration with the Low Carbon at Work and the CRISP consortium and SCORAI Europe, convened a two-day workshop to exchange and compare concepts, methodologies and results of the three projects mentioned, as well as based on related research. An additional aim was to search for similarities, complementarities and further lessons to be learnt, not only for researchers and practitioners, but also to develop additional recommendations with regard to pathway development and facilitation. The workshop shed light on developments in Transition Management and backcasting with regard to the involvement of end-users, citizens, employees/workers, consumers and communities and how this can and should complement more widely applied multi-stakeholder led initiatives and top-down initiatives by the government empowering local communities or targeting the provision system rather than the consumption system.

Many thanks to all participants for their thought-provoking contributions to and active engagement during the workshop.
