In this respect, the Special Issue covers institutional actors, organizational actors, individual-level actors, as well as collective forms of sustainability agency.

  • Conceptualizing sustainability (change) agency via theoretical development and synthesis;

  •  Providing fresh empirical insights, and/or thorough reviews of existing bodies of knowledge, and/or theoretical developments on sustainability (change) agency;
