Sustainability Science

Sustainability Science studies and educates, how to enable transformations to a safe and just planet.

  • How to create solutions that are synergic for various sustainability goals?
  • How to enable sustainability transformation across scales and system levels?
  • How could sustainable food and energy systems look like and how to achieve them?

We apply interdisciplinary understanding and technological insights to co-create sustainability transformation. We contribute to securing nutrition and energy for all within planetary boundaries, especially regarding climate change and eutrophication. Cross-scale resilience, sharing and circular economy, and inclusion of public, private and civil society actors around the globe are focuses of our research.
