In light of the ongoing climate emergency and mass extinction, members of society are increasingly taking to public activism. In parallel, universities around the globe are urged to advance their sustainability commitments and take a leading role in the transition to a sustainable society.
In this event, a panel of students and researchers will explore the concept of activism within academia. In the time of a global emergency, what can or should researchers and students do in order to bring about change - at their universities, in the lecture hall, and through their research and studies? What could activism within academia entail? Does it, can, or should it exist? If so, in what shape?
Panel: Steven Curtis - PhD student, IIIEE Martin Jarenmark - Research engineer, Department of Geology Milan Loose - Master student, IIIEE Kimberly Nicholas - Associate Professor, LUCSUS Lisa Quartey - Bachelor student, Centre for Languages and Literature Josefine Sarkez - PhD student, Division of Ethnologyl
