08:30-09:30 | Common programme in Runan
Health and wellbeing is the third Sustainable Development Goal and the theme for this year’s Sustainability Day. Health and wellbeing are cross-cutting issues that matter to us as individuals, for Chalmers as an organisation, for Gothenburg, Sweden, other countries and the international community. Our university contributes to solving global and local health problems but we also face challenges related to our work and study environment. The morning panel discusses health, wellbeing and sustainability and how global and Swedish trends may influence Chalmers’ role, responsibility and strategic development. Guests include key people from Chalmers’ management as well as experts in antibiotic resistance, health and organisational development.
Participating: Anna Dubois, Chalmers First Vice President, Fredrik Hörstedt, Vice President of Utilisation, Maria Knutson Wedel, Vice President of Education and Lifelong Learning, Maria Grahn, Director of Chalmers Energy Area of Advance, PhD Lisa Björk, Institute of Stress Medicine, Lisskulla Lindström, HR Director Chalmers, Joakim Larsson, director of the Center for Antibiotics Resistance Research at the University of Gothenburg.
Moderator: PhD Helene Ahlborg, School of Global Studies, University of Gothenburg
