Applying Sustainability Transition Research in Social Work tackling Major Societal Challenge of Social Inclusion

Project description

Combining sustainability transition research and social work

Transdisciplinary sustainability transition research, policies and practices in social work will be combined to create a new scientific domain. By establishing new transformative standards of social work doctoral training in Europe, the EU-funded ASTRA project will pave the way for a radical new approach to tackling major societal challenges. Specifically, the project will train early-stage researchers to focus on the challenge of social inclusion of young people in precarious situations and migrants in vulnerable communities. Led by a consortium of leading European social work academics and research organisations for environmental and economic sustainability, ASTRA will investigate methodic models of nature-based well-being, environmental justice, and circular and solidarity economy as well as sustainable food policies in vulnerable communities.
