Humankind faces a number of daunting challenges in order to attain planetary environmental sustainability. Organizations of all forms, including private firms, government agencies, academic institutions, and civil society actors, will play a central role in bringing about the needed transformations.
Participants of this conference will discuss fundamental scholarship on organizations and their role in creating a sustainable future. This scholarship could also include research on knowledge and resources that organizations will need to meet the challenges posed by climate change. We invite paper submissions that draw from diverse academic disciplines and/or from interdisciplinary research teams.
