TRANSREAL explores innovative ways to combine radical with incremental and feasible action to achieve climate-friendly and climate-resilient practices and policies. Such transformative climate action (TCA), contributing to a desired social-ecological transformation, links short-term objectives to improve immediate living conditions with long-term concerns to stay within planetary boundaries. The project will co-design such TCAs in two Austrian rural micro-regions in the field of land use and soc.-econ. aspects of housing, like countering splintered development, providing affordable housing, contributing to village regeneration and local job creation, and sustaining provisioning. The overarching research question of TRANSREAL is how transformative realism can improve climate action.
