Sustainability Week 2019
Tick-tock goes the clock, as 2030 creeps ever closer. There are seventeen global goals that we, as one humanity, must accomplish to secure a sustainable future - we have to transform our world. The path to sustainability is long and winding and the wrong solutions might force us to choose between those seventeen. Our hope is to, during this week, envision a sustainable society and anticipate the trade-offs we might have to make in order to design systems which can ensure the success of the entirety of Agenda2030. For this, we need to escape our silos and meet across disciplines, sectors and political divides – Sustainability Week exists to provide a platform for those meetings. This year, we have chosen to focus on Food, Cities, Work/Life and Stories – areas we perceive to be in great need of transformation. We invite you to listen, discuss, create and learn throughout Sustainability Week and integrate these perspectives into your own work or field of study.
Do you and your organization want to join?
We welcome all organizations, companies, public and private individuals to organize seminars, workshops, meetings or other ideas that raise sustainability issues during the week. It’s easier for us to communicate it if it fits into the broader themes outlined above. Perhaps you have your own idea of an activity you want to do during the week but need to find partners? We urge you to cooperate outside of your own sphere, reach out to other disciplines for a fresh perspective or invite a practitioner to combine theory with practice.
