Abstract

Sustainability science has evolved significantly over the past century and contributed to our systemic understanding of sustainability challenges of the Anthropocene. However, its contribution to global sustainability transition has been limited. To be more impactful, sustainability science needs deeper integration with the social and human sciences and the arts. It should engage and co-evolve with underlying socio-economic and cultural roots of environmental changes. Research systems and research and public policy changes are explored.
