LUCSUS and Lund University 350th Celebrations
Is water one of the world’s most dangerous substances? Is climate change a threat to national security? How does turbulence, national and international, affect governance of sustainability? These are some of the topics that will be discussed as part of LUCSUS’ involvement in the Lund University 350th anniversary celebration.
LUCSUS’ programme of activities include both centre specific activities such as World Water Day and the LUMES alumni conference, as well as events organised solely for the jubilee - such as the Jubilee University Lecture on climate change and security, and a public event on the future of food where LUCSUS' researchers are presenting. Some of the events will be open to the general public whereas others are directed at groups such as researchers or former students.
- Through the anniversary programme, we want to raise awareness of, and create a discussion on, the sustainability challenges facing us today, says Director Emily Boyd. We also see this as a great occasion to mark the achievements of both our researchers and the university as a whole.
