Global Consortium

The Pathways to Sustainability Global Consortium unites five continents with one vision: to tackle the most pressing sustainability challenges facing the world now and in decades to come. The Consortium is made up of six ‘hubs’ based in leading academic institutes in Africa, South Asia, China, Europe, Latin and North America, which work together on transdisciplinary research, policy engagement, teaching, impact and communications.

The Consortium’s flagship project aims to carry out comparative research and encourage social transformations to respond to socio-ecological problems in six countries. Begun in 2015 in Argentina, Mexico, Kenya, China, the UK and India, the project is conducting ‘Transformation Labs’ (referred to as T-Labs) to explore people’s visions, values and ideas, and produce practical social or technical innovations involving local people.
