Workshop #2 (March 14, 2012)

Hey Everyone!

On March 14th we will be having our second workshop which will focus on interpreting life cycle analyses. This will start at 17:15 and end at 20:00 and will be in room 11:130 in BlÄsenhus. If you plan on coming please send us an email at

We will be having a guest lecturer (Anna Ruban) who has worked quite a bit with LCAs. She will be walking you through on how to understand what the report is saying and how to make some calculation.

In order to prepare for this workshop we ask that you bring with you a calculator.

As a treat we will also fix a little fika to the workshop.
