Welcome to SDPMC!

Hej!

Welcome to Sustainable Development: Project Management & Communication!

If you haven't already found them, the Welcome Letter and a Prelimary Schedule are located just about this post under the 'Schedule and Info' drop down menu. Both give you more information about the course and the reading material for those that want to buy some books in advance.

Although the course doesn't offically start until the 2nd September we encourage all students to attend the CEMUS Open Lecture with Dougald Hine on Monday 1st Sept between 18-20 in the Eva Netzelius lecture hall located down the steps as you enter Blåsenhus. Here's a link to the Dark Mountain Manifesto, some of Dougalds earlier work and an interesting read that will get you thinking about the issues that we'll talk about and hopefully deal with as part of the course.

We're looking forward to meeting you all next week!

Don’t forget the Open Lecture this Thursday (30th Jan) and the Welcome Café at CEMUS

We're just getting ready for the Course Registration and Introduction and thought we'd put a reminder up about the forthcoming lecture with Joseph Tainter entitled Social institutions, Transitions, Sustainability and Collapse. The lecture is held in Geocentrum in 'Norrlands' - the rooms just to your left as you go through the main entrance. The lecture kicks off at 13:15 and is followed by a Welcome Café in the CEMUS Multispace - all welcome!

Looking forward to meeting you all.
