Pathways Methods Vignettes

Browse through our brief overviews of some of the methods we’ve identified that can be used to explore pathways to sustainability. Each ‘method vignette’ outlines:

Background History and context
What’s Involved? Key features of the method itself and how it is undertaken
Broadening Out and Opening Up Specific ways in which this method helps address these qualities in appraisal
Possible Roles Fit and limits Strengths and weaknesses and how it fits with other STEPS-relevant approaches and aims (focusing, scoping or linking) and the four key stages of the STEPS methodology (engaging actors, exploring framings, addressing dynamics, revealing agency)
Key relevant references and weblinks



We are keen to feature methods that others have used to help open up pathways to sustainability. If you have one you’d like to share, please get in touch: steps-centre@ids.ac.uk
