The McGill Sustainability Systems Initiative is looking for big ideas in sustainability research from McGill faculty members based in the social sciences and humanities.

Solutions to sustainability challenges require much more than technological innovation, as viable plans to achieve sustainability must also address social and economic factors and conditions. For example, shifting society towards a more sustainable path will necessitate new norms, attitudes, habits, laws, economic incentives or instruments and public policies.
