2nd annual SEDwise meeting in Uppsala
The 2nd annual SEDwise meeting is hosted by Uppsala University (SWEDESD & SMED) and will take place from 30th May – 1st June 2017 in Uppsala, Sweden. The central theme of the meeting is ‘Universities as laboratories for a sustainable world/city’. During 3 days of lectures, study visits, workshops and seminars the SEDwise partners will engage in a joint exploration of how universities can connect education and research on wicked socio-ecological problems and, in doing so, become a kind of laboratories where people are collectively exposed to sustainability issues as matters of public concern. Combining practical and theoretical approaches, they will address topics such as transdisciplinarity – shifting roles of students, teachers and societal stakeholders – spaces and places for experimentation and collective study – interrupting the status quo and making new things possible – etc. Download the programme of the event.
