Universities around the world are increasingly committing to sustainability. Setting the priorities right is one thing, however becoming a change agent and factually addressing societal challenges, is another. It implies radical change in how we do research, how and what we teach, and how our campuses operate. In that transformation, connecting our research, education and operations to the SDGs is an important first step but by far, not enough.
On behalf of #SustainableTUe, we would like to cordially invite you to our symposium on the topic of transformative research for sustainability! This is a great opportunity to explore this topic together and also participate in the discussion about the insights and implications.
We are excited to share that scholars from our Dutch universities will honour us as a guest speaker, presenting their research (and work) on transformative research for sustainability: Prof. Johan Schot of Utrecht University; Dr. Anna Wieczorek of TU/e; and from the Erasmus University: Dr. Jilde Garst and Dr. Mariangela Lavanga. We hope to discuss this topic with you enjoying a delicious and sustainably prepared Lunch by the team of Café Zwarte Doos.
If you would like to be part of this event please RSVP until 26 May.
