Collaboration for sustainability – how to move forward?


To build a sustainable society we must face complex challenges and we know that cooperation between sectors is fundamental to achieve the global goals for sustainable development. We will have to create partnerships between researchers and non-academic actors (companies, CSOs, government agencies, public sector).

However, cooperation is not always easy. Can we learn from previous experiences and avoid common cooperative pitfalls when collaborating to achieve the goals? And how do we create good win-win relationships across borders that enable the progress towards sustainability that we desperately need? Hear examples and experiences from non-academic and academic actors on these topics and contribute with your own experiences.

At this breakfast seminar you will get good examples, inspiration and a possibility to network with others - because the road ahead is together!

Lund University Sustainability Forum welcomes you to Talk: Sustainability – a seminar series addressing future challenges connected to the global goals for sustainable development. In collaboration with different hosts around the university, our aim is to support exchange within the university and stimulating active collaboration to solve societal challenges. 

This event is organised in cooperation with the Sustainable Future Hub at LUSEM.

Please register for this event so we can buy the right amount of breakfast.
