Our themes

Our work focuses on 6 themes and their combinations:


1. Sustainable development strategies: What are the building blocks of successful SD strategies, which strategy concepts work best, who should be involved and how? 

2. Governance: the art of how to achieve results. 

3. Metagovernance: a governance approach which combines different governance styles into successful mixtures.

4. Transgovernance: an approach to sustainability governance that combines a number of social science concepts into a comprehensive view that takes into account the characteristics of contemporary societies.

5. Knowledge & Impact assessment: before, during and after the execution of policies, the impacts on the environment, the economy and on social systems should be assessed. 

6. Cultural diversity is one of the most neglected aspects in sustainable development, although dealing with it is a crucial success factor.
