Joint PhD seminars on environmental challenges

Seminar
Research concerning where nature and society meet, and where environmental crises appear, is being carried out by PhD candidates across Lund University. Although these researchers are employing different methods and asking different questions, their topics under investigation intersect in ways where conversing with each other could lead to improved understandings, new collaborations, and an enriched research experience.

This joint seminar series is conducted by and for PhD candidates at Lund University, primarily directed towards PhDs of Sustainability Science at LUCSUS, the PhD program in Environmental Science at CEC and members of the research school ClimBEco. The seminars aim to be an intellectual meeting place for PhD candidates to discuss in a peer-to-peer setting around topics that many can relate to, albeit from different angles of vision. The goal is NOT to reach consensus, but to explore where similarities and differences exist with the goal of expanding networks within the research community at Lund University.

It is a joint initiative by ClimBEco, LUCSUS and CEC. PhD candidates from other faculties and departments at Lund University, as well as advanced master-level student are welcome to attend. Registration is required and places are limited.

The format: Each joint seminar consists of a panel of three current PhD candidates presenting for 15 minutes each on an aspect relating to the topic at hand. This is followed by a 15-minute panel discussion between the three presenters, supported by a moderator.

Theme 1: Nature-based solutions to societal problems - what are the complexities from different stakeholder perspectives?

 

For this first joint seminar we invite researchers looking at perceptions of nature-based solutions from three different angles. Terese Thoni (CEC) is up-close with IPCC/policy-makers, Lovisa Nilsson (CEC) considers regional stakeholders and Stephen Woroniecki (LUCSUS) includes climate vulnerable groups, each in their research on nature-based solutions to climate change (Terese and Stephen) and sustainable agriculture (Lovisa). The red thread of their topics is this: Nature-based solutions are generally seen as ‘good ideas’ for solving problems in the world, but we need to explore the complexity of applying them in our current structures of society.
