Sustainable Futures in Africa Press / Publications update

News

I'm pleased to let you know about a number of publications and press features relating to the Sustainable Futures in Africa (SFA) network, an interdisciplinary collective that brings together researchers, educators, and communities of practice that acknowledge the situated and complex nature of practices and conceptions of sustainability. The Network aims to build understanding, research, and practice in socio-ecological sustainability in Africa.
