LUCSUS at Sustainability Week

hållbarhetsveckan toppbild

LUCSUS is part of the annual Sustainability Week in Lund, 8-13 April. This year's theme "Transforming our world" focuses on the global goals and agenda 2030. LUCSUS will participate in, and host, several events about sustainable transformations at different levels.

8 April

Opening  and guided tour of the exhibition Carbon Ruins. 

‘Carbon Ruins’ aims to transport the visitor into a future where transitions to post-fossil society has already happened. By focusing on recognisable objects the exhibition bridges the gap between the daily lives of humans and the abstract impacts of climate change. The choice of the objects and the associated stories are based on climate models and expertise from the Narrating Climate Futures network. The characters and events which construct the story have been generated through participatory workshops with researchers and practitioners in food, transport, steel, energy and plastic. The exhbition will be open all Sustainability Week. Read more

Time: 16.00-18.00
Location: Eden

Climate Confessions by The Really Wild Show

Away from others, participants will find a quiet, cozy space, for a moment of introspection. Provided with a series of reflection questions that link to the adjacent exhibition Carbon Ruins, participants will record themselves talking about their own relation to the narratives, especially their past “sins” as well as their visions for changes in the future.

Since 2017, researchers and students at Lund University Centre for Sustainability Studies have embarked on a more experimental approach; the Really Wild Show. RWS brings together researchers, artists, and others in order to collectively realise performative events, moments, spaces, actions and interventions that enable a radical reimagining of sustainability, as a science, practice and performance. Our niches is to convene experience that are both cathartic and disruptive. More information

Time: 16.00-20.00
Location: Eden, Room 137
