The Sustainability Week 2021*

The week after the end of the semester Södertörn University is arranging a sustainability event so that we can meet after a year of unusual study and working conditions.

The goal is to give the opportunity for the whole University to, meet, reflect, and to set the aim for the next year of studies. Between the 9th to the 11th of June, and also to some extent the days before and after, the University will, besides the thesis competition, offer a range of sustainability-oriented activities.

The days will contain interesting presentation, thoughtworthy seminars, and inspiring conversations. Scientists from the Royal Institute of Technology will present effects of travels by flights within government agencies, workshops focused on learnings from distance work will be held, the SDG – impact assessment tool will be presented, a ISDRS meeting organized by Södertörn University and the Swedish Defense University will inform and inspire, Researcher's desk discussions will be conducted, and much more.

The activities will be presented in greater detail in the middle of April but write down the dates 9th to 11th of June strait away, so you don’t miss out.
