Call for Papers – Future Urban Sustainability

The Urban Studies Working Group at the University of Vienna and the Department of Economics and Law at HTW Berlin cordially invite you to submit your abstracts to a forthcoming workshop on “Future Urban Sustainability: Lessons learnt from the SDGs and perspectives for a post-2030 agenda”. The workshop will take place in Vienna and online on 8th and 9th July.


We welcome research papers that address issues such as the usefulness of global policy agendas for promoting local sustainability in general and in specific contexts, the limitations and transformative potentials of sustainability indicators and monitoring systems, accountability in urban development and planning, the roles of transdisciplinary alliances within and between cities and whether and how innovations in governance or digitalization can support the 2030 Agenda and its successor. We encourage contributions from different geographical backgrounds and theoretical approaches, as well as case studies and comparative work.

Workshop contributions may later be published as part of a Special Issue of the journal Urban Planning.

Please have a look at the document below (oder wo auch immer es hinkommt) and send us your 200-word abstracts and short bios by 15th May.

You are most welcome to share this Call with your colleagues.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Julia Wesely (
