Just a reminder that Tuesday's lecture will be in the Uppsala Learning Lab (hus 21:241, Blasenhus), and it starts at 10.00 sharp, not 10.15. Please remember also to do the pre-task for Seminar 2 beforehand.
On Wednesday we go to Stockholm for the field trip. The bus will depart from Geocentrum at 8.00 sharp! Our very nice bus driver Peter will provide a (free) light breakfast. Bring your bathing suit and also your rain gear - the weather could go either way. We should be back in Uppsala for around 17.30, and afterwards we will go to Upplands Nation for anyone who wants to join.
If anyone is meeting us in Stockholm at the first site, the address is Källtorps trädgård, Ältavägen 105, 13133 Nacka.
The articles for UAG 2013 are now uploaded, just follow the link above.

We're looking forward to getting the course started on Monday June 10th, at 10.00. You can find the UAG 2013 Student Information Pack and also the schedule by following the links above.
Please note that the classes will be held in Salen 12:128, in Blåsenhus. Salen 12:128 is on the first floor in Hus 12, there are signs directing you where to go.
We have emailed all the students who have been admitted to ask how many will attend. For those students who are on the reserve list, we will be in touch within the next two weeks to let you know if there are free spaces on the course.
See you soon!

On Monday afternoon, we have 2 lectures; one on the Transition Movement with Claudia French, and this is followed by a skype lecture with Andrew Faust on Urban Permaculture and Bioregionalism - 2 great lectures to round off the course! Please read the articles for weeks 4-5 before then. The lectures start at 14.00.
On Monday we will pass around a sign-up sheet so you can register to present your final project on Wednesday, either in the morning (10.00-12.30) or the afternoon (13.15-15.30). You are only required to attend the session you are presenting in, but you can of course attend both sessions.
Your presentation should last 5-7 minutes, and include a visual aide - a Power Point, Poster, or a physical object. There will be approx. 10 minutes for questions and discussion after each presentation.
See you next week!
Hi everyone, thanks for all of your interesting reflections. On Tuesday afternoon we will watch a short documentary, and afterwards we will have a discussion on the film and also the academic articles for week 3. This activity is not compulsory, it's just a chance to have a discussion for those who want to participate. See you next week!
Hi everyone, In addition to the Seminar 2 Pre-task, please also read the 4 academic articles for weeks 1 and 2 before Tuesday's seminar. They will form the basis of a discussion activity. Thanks!
Hi everyone, the two compulsory course assignments are now posted above. We will introduce these assignments in our course introduction on June 4th, and of course answer any queries you may have.
