The objective of this two-day seminar is to bring together doctoral students, emerging scholars, and more experienced academics to present and discuss their research projects and receive feedback in a stimulating, developmental and friendly atmosphere.
We will explore commonalities as well as differences in each other’s research approaches and themes in an inspiring, sociable, and convivial academic setting. This seminar consists of a mix of plenary sessions, full paper and research idea sessions as well as several workshops around career development and publications strategy. All sessions will involve fellow PhD students, emerging scholars, and more experienced researchers and journal editors.

Real and equitable transition to a more sustainable world necessitates continued and accelerated actions in multiple domains. It requires shifting behaviors and thinking, building new infrastructure and systems, and keeping the pressure on businesses, policymakers and transnational entities to reach the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
To build a sustainable future, we need to call upon our imagination and creative skills. We need to think differently, see problems in new ways, and develop innovative responses.
….in other words to call upon the art of sustainability…
This year’s seminar wants to examine the art of sustainably in all its aspects, forms and meanings. It is a call for boldness and imagination but also a call to reconnect to our emotions and to nature, and move towards the system changes that are required.
…art such as…
Let’s (st)art the change!
