    In order to address the complex and interconnected phenomena related to planetary boundaries challenges, ‘real-world laboratories’ (RwL) are increasingly used in sustainability and transitions research for experimenting with sustainability solutions. More recently RwL are also introduced in higher education aiming to create a better understanding for societal sustainability transitions, and furthermore to train competences for personal sustainability by academic-practitioners mutual learning settings. This paper presents insight and experiences with transdisciplinary RwL in immersive urban and rural learning environments following a system-ic, participatory and inventive ‘Research Arts approach’. An impact analysis exposes early findings of this evolving educational methodology highlighting gains as well as lessons learned.
