Cambridge University Press unveils Cambridge Sustainability Commissions -

Academic publisher Cambridge University Press has launched Cambridge Sustainability Commissions, a new series to address pressing questions on global sustainability, transforming societies.

What are the best ways to help people and societies adopt sustainable lifestyles? Where should charities, NGOs and decision-makers put their money and effort? What can scientific research tell us about what works and what doesn't? How do we find that evidence in an ever-growing sea of global research? These are the pressing questions that will be addressed in the first of a new series of scientific assessments published by Cambridge University Press - Cambridge Sustainability Commissions.

Each commission will focus on an issue vital to global sustainability - finding, assessing and bringing together research from across the natural and social sciences to answer specific questions.

The results will be published Open Access in the Press's Global Sustainability journal and be freely available to anyone with an internet connection, anywhere in the world.

The first, "Cambridge Sustainability Commission on Scaling Sustainable Behaviour Change: State of Knowledge & Challenges for Societal System Transformations", has been commissioned by the Copenhagen-based KR Foundation.

Currently, it can be a real challenge to identify high-impact, evidence-based and scalable projects to fund in sustainable behaviour. People are often uncomfortable with the scale and urgency of the transformation needed for truly sustainable living and there is a lack of understanding about the relation between individual behaviour change and system change at a societal, regional, national or sectoral level.

The commission's aim is to help inform innovative, effective, evidence-based projects and interventions that will bring sustainable behaviour into mainstream thinking on climate change.

The global scientific assessment will be overseen by Professor Peter Newell of Sussex University, who will call on expertise across disciplines, regions and sectors to inform the commission's work. He will also gather evidence from those working on sustainable behaviour change.
