Pathways to Sustainability conference

24 januari

At the annual conference of Pathways to Sustainability all sustainability related researchers and partners come together. About sustainability from various perspectives. With interactive sessions and discussions.

The programme of the upcoming conference features keynotes from Sheila Jasanoff (Professor of Science and Technology Studies, Harvard University), Jeroen Willemsen (founder of the Green Protein Alliance), and Diederik Samsom (chair Klimaattafel Gebouwde Omgeving, nuclear physicist and former politician).

 

Harvard Professor Sheila Jasanoff challenges the two main visions to achieve a more sustainable world by introducing a new imaginary of the 'un-modern'. Diederik Samsom uses storytelling to take us on a journey to sustainable futures, based on his varied experience with sustainable energy in the energy sector, Dutch politics, and at Greenpeace. And Jeroen Willemsen, founder of the plant-based ‘chicken’ producing company Ojah, argues that we need to restore the worldwide protein balance to ensure food security.

 

In the afternoon we offer several interactive break-out sessions, which are organised by the hubs of Pathways to Sustainability. They cover the energy transition, future food, future deltas and circular cities. In addition, we have a session on the circular economy in relation to the plastic soup, and one on the creation of a sustainable campus. We close off with an interactive discussion about the role of the university in the transition to a sustainable society.

 

Marketplace

In between these programme elements you can visit the Sustainable Marketplace, representing all kinds of initiatives within Utrecht University related to sustainability. And during the vegetarian lunch and other breaks there is plenty of opportunity to get in touch with fellow sustainability experts.
