Dr. Colin Sage

Colin Sage, now retired, was Senior Lecturer in Geography at University College Cork and his work concerned questions of sustainability, resilience and adaptation. Although much of his research centred upon the food system, he retains a strong interest in the multi-dimensional implications of energy transition pathways from fossil fuels.

He co-led the Sustainability in Society research cluster in UCC and collaborated closely with energy scholars through the Environmental Research Institute. He was co-editor of Transdisciplinary Perspectives on Transitions to Sustainability (Routledge, 2017) and author of Environment and Food (Routledge, 2012).

He currently serves as Chair of the Cork Food Policy Council, which he helped to create in 2013.

Together with staff of the Boole Library at UCC, Dr Sage helped to establish the repository of materials comprising books, papers and reports donated by Dr Colin Campbell and which is available for consultation in the Library’s Special Collections unit by appointment.
