At the same time, there is a long history of discrimination and colonization, and many communities have been living with a threat to lives, livelihood and well-being for decades or centuries. Not least have indigenous communities been sacrificed and exploited in the name of development, often in the form of what has been considered engineering feats such as large hydropower. In this seminar, we highlight the struggles of indigenous communities, and how to avoid repeating mistakes of the past in the current transition.</span><h3 class="chalmersElement-H3">Keynote</h3> <div><strong>Sanna Vannar</strong>, Åvddåulmusj/ president of the Sáminuorra</div> <div><br /></div> <div>Sanna Vannar (24), is from Jokkmokk, and also reindeerherder. Not all the members of Sáminuorra are from reindeer herding families, but as a cornerstone of Saami culture, the reindeer are integral to the lives of all Saami. This is why the fate of the reindeer is directly linked with the future of the Saami. Sáminuorra has decided to take this Peoples Climate Case to the European General Court.</div> <h3 class="chalmersElement-H3">Panelist</h3> <div><a href="/en/staff/Pages/helene-ahlborg.aspx" target="_blank">Helene Ahlborg</a>, Assistant Professor in the division of Environmental Systems Analysis of the Department of Technology Management and Economics.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>Helene Ahlborg’s research is about rural electrification in East Africa and societal transformation. She studies the co-development of technology and society and how the provision of electricity services, based on small-scale renewable energy resources, impacts on people’s lives and transforms rural communities. But also, how the local context and especially social, economic and power relations between poor and rich, women and men, young and old, village and town, etc. influence the electrification process and impact on the long-term viability of the energy system.<br /><span style="background-color:initial"><br /><a href="" target="_blank">Steve Williams</a>, Research Group Leader - Transdisciplinary Theory, Evaluation, and Culture, Institute  for Advanced Sustainability Studies, Potsdam, DE; SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, SE; Adjunct Professor, Simon Fraser University, School of Resource and Environmental Management, Vancouver, CA </span></div> <div><br /></div> <div>Steve's research is on assessing the impact of sustainability transitions processes with a focus on energy systems transition. He studies the processes, effects, and impacts of transition labs with a particular emphasis on integrating conceptions of environmental justice into his analysis. Most recently, Steve is leading a new Research Group at IASS that is investigating the theory, methods, and cultures of transdisciplinary and transformative research. A common thread through his research is the integration, representation, and recognition of Indigenous peoples in transitions research and practice. <a href=";hl=en" target="_blank">Google scholar profile​</a></div> <div><h3 class="chalmersElement-H3">Live stream via Zoom!<br /><a href="" target="_blank" style="font-family:inherit;font-size:14px"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/icgen.gif" alt="" /> ​</a><br /><em style="font-family:inherit;background-color:initial;color:rgb(51, 51, 51);font-size:14px;font-weight:300">Please, connect a couple of minutes prior to the start.</em></h3></div>,-TME.aspx,-TME.aspxPublic defence of doctoral thesis - Johnn Andersson, ESA<p>Live stream via Zoom.

Other issues to be discussed are for example interoperability of apps, mandatory use vs. obligatory use, central vs. decentralized approaches, and the role of the GDPR which is both a strength and challenge for digitalizing medical services. It is intended that this webinar will compare insights and practical experiences from Asia, New Zealand, Canada and Europe and draw lessons for further development.</div> <h3 class="chalmersElement-H3">Program</h3> <div><strong>Opening remarks:</strong> Stephen Schmidt, ITS Chairman and Vice-President Telecom Policy &amp; Chief Regulatory Legal Counsel at TELUS Communications.</div> <div> </div> <div><strong>Moderator: </strong><a href="/en/Staff/Pages/erik-bohlin.aspx" target="_blank">Erik Bohlin, Chalmers University</a></div> <div><strong>Co-moderator: </strong>Georg Serentschy, Serentschy Advisory Services GmbH</div> <div> </div> <div><strong>Confirmed speakers:</strong></div>  <ul><li>Masahiro Sogabe, Professor, Graduate School of Law, Kyoto University on the Japanese perspective </li> <li>Bronwyn E.
