About the programme

A pioneering research programme

The programme has had two phases:

The goal of the T2S programme is to accelerate the emergence of a significant body of knowledge on social transformations that can inform the development of solutions to urgent sustainability challenges.

The Transformations to Sustainability Programme is supported by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida). The National Research Foundation (NRF), South Africa, was an implementing partner in the call for proposals for Transformative Knowledge Networks.
