The overall objective with this workshop is to explore, together with
teachers from different scientific areas, methods to engage students
meaningfully in sustainable development in the context of higher
education at Chalmers and Gothenburg university. We discuss how we can
transform education, in our own fields, so that it becomes more relevant
in terms of building capacity for students to meet the global
challenges that they will meet in the future.
Chaired by professor Arjen Wals
The workshop is chaired by Arjen Wals, professor of Transformative
Learning for Socio-Ecological Sustainability at Wageningen University in
The Netherlands, the Carl Bennet Guest Professor in Education for
Sustainable Development at Gothenburg University and senior advisor at
the Centre for Environment and Sustainability, GMV.
Two workshops are arranged and you are welcome to participate in one of them.
During the workshop we will practice a few methods by literally
"walking the talk" so bring a pair of comfortable shoes and an umbrella
in case of rainy weather.
