The politics of sustainability 15 October 2021
Dear members of LU Urban arena!
After a turbulent summer, the challenges of sustainability and climate change are more visible than ever. We know that urban development requires significant political efforts, political will and governance capacity to achieve sustainability essential goals. To support future achievements, research on governance, planning and participation will have a key role to play in these endeavors. What role can we as researchers at Lund university have in these endeavors?
Please join the LU urban arena working group on Governance, participation, planning and innovation for a brainstorming and networking breakfast webinar on LU-research within these fields. At the event we will present our group, and discuss future activities.
To exemplify, we have previously organized “match-making” events in relation to calls for funding, but we have also hosted inter-disciplinary breakfast seminars. What in your current work do you want to share with colleagues at the university? What would you like to see more off?
Date: 15 oktober
Time: 8:30-9:30 - and after-webinar coffee in the Botanical garden for those who want!
Registration: Please sign up by emailing Dalia.firstname.lastname@example.org before Oct 14, and we will send you the link!
