Sustainability: Science, Practice, & Policy

"Sustainability: Science, Practice and Policy" (SSPP) is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal providing a platform for the dissemination of new practices and for dialogue emerging out of the fields of sustainability science and policy practice. The journal fills a gap in the literature by establishing a forum for cross-disciplinary discussion of empirical science as well as practice and policy developments. SSPP facilitates communication among scientists, practitioners, and policy makers who are investigating and shaping nature-society interactions and working toward sustainable solutions.

The journal's summer issue, entitled "Sustainable Food Consumption: Current Trends, Policy Approaches, and Future Scenarios" contains articles ranging from red meat consumption to developing a foodprint tool to raise awareness about healthy and environmentally conscious food choices. As quoted by the issue's editors, "The complexities related to the contemporary system of food production and consumption are immensely challenging for sustainability policy making." -- Michal Sedlacko, Lucia Reisch, & Gerd Scholl. As result, this special issue on sustainable food consumption is a step to help alleviate some of the challenges and unknown research regarding the topic.
