Engaging higher education in local and global challenges
23-26 October 2016
The topics will be concentrated around the implications on climate change and on a general course content and learning methods in university education for the future we want. Climate change will evidently have consequences on all societal sectors, all over the world and therefore needs to be dealt with from multidimensional perspectives, supporting local and global solutions. The mitigation and adaptation will demand a broad set of actions: ranging from biodiversity and habitat protection to transforming of energy support systems, water and food support systems, production and consumption patterns, urban and rural planning to healthcare and security.
