Students, teachers, researchers and other professionals are invited to a one-day conference on Saturday 28 March 2020 to discuss how to put the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into action in our educational programs, research, and collaborations with society.
This conference is the second in a series, building on the conference "Rethinking Higher Education" held at Karolinska Institutet in March 2019. This conference offers an exciting forum for carrying forward the results from the first conference in 2019 where participants identified how universities can take responsibility for, and be inspired by, the Sustainable Development Goals in our activities.
Arjen Wals, Professor of Transformative Learning for Socio-Ecological Sustainability at Wageningen University, is confirmed as a keynote speaker. A tentative programme is available at the conference website.
Rethinking Higher Education 2020 is organised by the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology in collaboration with Karolinska Institutet and the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
