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.
