"Sustainability in Transition offers a comprehensive and thorough examination of how multi-level sustainability transitions work, why they are so difficult to achieve, and what skills and strategies are needed to advance sustainable solutions. Clearly written - while not sacrificing sophistication for simplicity - this book will be accessible to a broad range of readers. The discussion of sustainability competencies - combined with the clearly articulated learning objectives and "checks on learning"- will be helpful pedagogical resources for instructors at all levels. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in developing a deep and nuanced understanding of sustainability or seeking to become an effective sustainability champion." - Jennifer H.
