Subjective wellbeing and Sustainable Development 

Special Issue of Sustainability  

Call for papers 




Although sustainable development was recognised as a process for change over 30 years ago, achieving sustainability still remains a challenge.  Many sustainability initiatives remain within existing systems and practices dominated by an economic growth worldview. This special issue focuses on the potential for a new worldview – subjective wellbeing - as a means of creating a different process for sustainable change. It will not only consider the extent to which sustainability initiatives contribute to subjective wellbeing, but more importantly the potential for subjective wellbeing  to provide a new narrative for sustainability and the role of individual and collective subjective wellbeing as a precursor to achieving the changes needed. This special issue will be situated within a growing field of literature that challenges the dominance of existing systems and processes, and human-centric, individualised conceptualisations of wellbeing, to bring about sustainability through whole systems transformative change.
