Panel Discussion and Workshop: The Future Sustainable University - LUCSUS and Sustainability Forum


At a workshop on 18 October 2017 organised by the Sustainability Forum with some help from LUCSUS,  students and staff can put forward their ideas to develop Lunds University’s continuing sustainability-related work. Get involved and discuss different themes in a small table format.   

The workshop will be preceded by a panel discussion on how to integrate sustainability in education - with staff from across key departments from the University (OBS - the panel will be in Swedish).

You will be able to participate at two workshop tables (where you can speak both English and Swedish) during the afternoon. There will also be time for mingling before and after the event including a chance to talk to student associations known for their positive approach to sustainability. At each workshop table there will be specialists, a discussion leader and someone who documents the proposed ideas. There will also be a discussion at every workshop table about how Lund University can work according to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
