Panel Discussion and Workshop: The Future Sustainable University
You will be able to participate at two workshop tables (where you can speak both English and Swedish) during the afternoon. There will also be time for mingling before and after the event including a chance to talk to student associations known for their positive approach to sustainability. At each workshop table there will be specialists, a discussion leader and someone who documents the proposed ideas. There will also be a discussion at every workshop table about how Lund University can work according to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
