    Författare :Kateryna Pereverza; Maria Malmström; Olga Kordas; David Lazarevic; Karel Mulder; Lars Coenen; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Sustainability transitions; strategic planning; participatory backcasting; scenarios; modularity; participatory modelling; transdisciplinarity; organisational changes; heating and cooling sector; Omställningsprocesser; strategisk planering; deltagande backcasting; modularitet; deltagandemodellering; tvärvetenskap; organisationsförändringar; uppvärmning och kylning; Industriell ekologi; Industrial Ecology;

    Sammanfattning : Fostering sustainability transitions in the heating and cooling sector is a necessary and urgent issue. Steering mechanisms can enable coordination of actions by different actors towards common sustainability goals. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Transport systems meeting long-term climate targets : A backcasting approach

    Författare :Jonas Åkerman; Mattias Höjer; Glenn Lyons; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Other social sciences; Övrig samhällsvetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Future transport systems consistent with long-term climate targets are examined in this thesis, using a systems perspective covering the entire transport system. Aviation is given particular attention, as expansion of this mode is difficult to reconcile with climate targets. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Navigating Sustainability Transformations: Backcasting, transdisciplinarity and social learning

    Författare :Johan Holmén; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; backcasting; transformations; systems change; social learning; Education for Sustainable Development ESD ; Sustainability; transitions; reflexive governance; transdisciplinarity;

    Sammanfattning : Complex and persistent sustainability challenges necessitate transformations into futures that are fundamentally different to what was before. Such change processes cannot be planned in traditional ways; they require reflexive modes of governing where we collectively learn how to navigate uncharted terrain while exploring it. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Guiding Sustainability Transitions: Backcasting, Experimentation and Social learning

    Författare :Johan Larsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; sustainability transitions; transdisciplinarity; reflexive governance; experimentation; backcasting; Education for Sustainable Development ESD ; social learning;

    Sammanfattning : Sustainability challenges including climate change, social injustice, resource depletion and biodiversity loss are becoming increasingly apparent. These challenges can be understood as partly resulting from unsustainable socio-technical systems in society, assumed to require transitions to become sustainable in time. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Making Futures : On Targets, Measures and Governance in Backcasting and Planning

    Författare :Josefin Wangel; Örjan Svane; Lars Nilsson; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; futures studies; backcasting; planning; governance; sustainable development;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is about the making of futures – in the sense of planning, through which the world of tomorrow is crafted, and in the sense of images of the future, developed through the futures studies approach of backcasting. The point of departure for the thesis is that more visionary and strategic forms of planning are needed if the challenges of sustainable development are to be met, and that backcasting, through its long-term, integrative and normative character, can be a helpful tool towards this end.
