Welcome to Global Challenges and Sustainable Futures!

Fall semester 2012 is starting.

This interdisciplinary course at the Centre for Environment and Development Studies (CEMUS) is given for the sixth time. The course is built on informative and engaging lectures on the global challenges of our time. In interactive workshops, seminars and a group project we will take a closer look at sustainability issues and how they are interconnected, by looking at specific regions and cities, both from global and local perspectives.

Registration for the course will be on Monday, September 3rd between 14.00 and 17.00 (drop-in) at the Cemus Library at Geocentrum, Villavägen 16 Uppsala.

We start every semester with common inspirational and introductory lectures for all courses. These lectures introduce sustainable development and education for sustainable development, both in thematic and theoretical ways and from more practical and personal points of view. This year we will have two common lectures:

Panel Discussion on the future of education and sustainable development with CEMUS co-founders Niclas Hällström, (What Next Initiative) and Magnus Tuvendahl, (Stockholm Resilience Centre). Monday, September 3rd, 6.15pm–8.30pm in the Main University Building, Hall X, Biskopsgatan 3. The panel is arranged in connection to CEMUS’ 20 Year Jubilee.

Lecture ”Introduction to Sustainable Development” with Alan AtKisson, author and consultant on sustainable development, www.atkisson.com. Monday, September 10th, 6.15pm–8.30pm in Lecture hall 3 Ekonomikum, Kyrkogårdsg. 10.

See you at the registration.
