Contributions for the book are sought from academics, practitioners, policymakers, business leaders, journalists and entrepreneurs. 


This project aims to develop a multi-disciplinary, comprehensive understanding of the issues and challenges relating to the advancement of the SDGs in different contexts to capture the lessons learned and inspiring examples from practice. As such, submissions based on different approaches, whether reflexive, empirical, hands-on or applied theory, will be considered.

All chapters should be between 2,500 and 4,500 words in length, and contributors should ensure that cases are placed in the context of the sustainability agenda promulgated by the SDGs. The editors are particularly interested in chapters that critically evaluate illustrative examples of good practices and innovations from a range of business, organizational, and global perspectives.

Papers must be submitted, without exception, as per the editorial guidelines, including those of Routledge which can be found at: Potential contributors are encouraged to visit the websites of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the PRME, including its Working Groups for further information. They may also contact the editors, whose email addresses are noted above, if they have additional questions.
