Here at SRRNet we are always interested in new ways to develop our ideas. So in collaboration with our colleagues from Haute Ecole Francisco Ferrer we are introducing a new activity:

Sustainability in Action

This will be a dynamic workshop focusing not just upon the theory of sustainability and its associated accountability but also upon the practical effects in the real world. So this workshop will be partly based around presentation but also around site visits and a subsequent discussion of the implications.

This will take place in Brussels from 25-27 October and we look forward to you joining us in this exciting new venture.

Here is the Call for Papers:

We are pleased to announce that the website for the 2023 conference in Madrid is now live.

We look forward to receiving your submissions and to meeting you in Madrid in September.

We are pleased to announce that our chapter: The Many Facets of Sustainability, from our recent book: The Complexities of Sustainability, published by World Scientific is now available for free download at:

Look out for our forthcoming publications and as always if you wish to contribute check our calls for papers at and send your contributions.

Historic or Histrionic?

So the meeting has ended with what is being claimed as a historic agreement. But this historic agreement is empty words unless the promised action is taken - and there has been no agreement about this! Even if everything that is in the agreement was actually achieved then it will only slow down environmental degradation when what is really needed is reversal. So for historic then read histrionic.

At the Network we continue to try to take positive steps towards achieving all aspects of sustainability. We do this through our conferences and our publications and by encouraging collaborations and dissemination of best practice. Many small steps will get us there but a lot of noise will not. So visit our website to see the ongoing activities. Better still join us - at one of our conferences or by publishing in our books and journals.


After a successful conference in Mauritius we are looking forward to the conference in 2023. This will be the 20th and will be held in Madrid. here is David’s invitation and we look forward to seeing all of you

At SRRNet we aim to hold our conferences all over the world so that everyone gets a chance to attend and to discuss ideas with like minded people from other parts of the world. This is how ideas develop and are promulgated. This map was produced by one of our members (Prof Kristijan Krkac) to show where we have held our conferences.


Next year (2023) we will be in Madrid and the proposals we have for the next few years are based in different parts of the world, continuing our tradition. So we hope that you will be able to join us at one or more of our forthcoming conferences.
