Lund: A university for sustainable development?
New demands on education in the light of Agenda 2030
Lund University’s Strategic Plan states that we must take a major social responsibility and meet the global challenges. The goals in Agenda 2030 place new demands on research, education and collaboration, which would require brave and active changes. An open and inclusive discussion is needed on how to set these changes in motion.
