Call for Contributions: Sustainable Lifestyles, Livelihoods and the Circular Economy, 27-29 June 2017, Brighton, UK

Shared by Philip Vergragt on our mailing list.

The Global Research Forum invites session and paper proposals for its third international conference on the theme of “Sustainable Lifestyles, Livelihoods and the Circular Economy,” hosted by the Institute of Development Studies and the Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU) at the University of Sussex. The conference will convene researchers, development practitioners, policymakers and representatives from business, government and civil society to explore paths to sustainable production and consumption through the synergies and tensions among the circular economy, sustainable lifestyles and livelihoods, and their implications for the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  Keeping with GRF’s emphasis on global perspectives, we will explore these questions across different regions and communities, in both industrialized and developing countries.

Contributions can take several formats including session proposals (deadline 1 November 2016), individual papers & posters (deadline 1 December 2016) and Special Work Studios (deadline 1 November 2016).

Detailed call for contributions and proposal submission instructions are available on the conference webpage.
