Sustainability is becoming a core focus of geography. Socio-technical transition theorists have made important contributions to our knowledge of the challenges and possibilities for achieving more sustainable societies. The paper assesses the significance for geographers interested in understanding the space, time, and scalar characteristics of sustainable development of one major strand of socio-technical transition theory, the multi-level perspective on socio-technical regime transitions. The AA. identify four major limitations facing it, show how insights from geographers can help address these challenges, and briefly examine a case study (GMO and food production)
