How constraints make us grow
Society in transition

22nd–24th February 2016
Vienna University of Economics and Business

Our understanding of the natural constraints of our planet is continually growing and deepening. What prevents us from making changes to our lifestyles and economic activities and especially from placing them on a sustainable footing? Why is no change of direction taking place?

The third international Growth in Transition Conference in Vienna at Europe’s largest university of economics includes panels with inspiring speakers, fascinating breakout sessions tackling different aspects of the Conference theme, participatory conference formats and the opportunity to exchange insights with leading figures from the spheres of politics, science and civil society.
