General introduction

TRUST (social innovation sTRategies for sUSTainability transitions) is a FCT research project that focus on sustainability transition initiatives supported by social learning and innovation as important factors that drive transformative change in social-ecological systems for community development. ​ The goal is to contribute to create locally based sustainability transitions initiatives, boosting transformative processes, through social innovation strategies, that can enable changes in approaches, routines, practices, systems and mind-sets. ​ The project adopts a participatory research and multi-actor approach with empirical observations in both urban and rural social-ecological contexts from three Portuguese case study regions: Lisbon, Aveiro and Évora. The TRUST project started in September 2018 and will run until August 2021.
