How can we work for real change towards a more just and sustainable future in the seemingly endless flood of “bad news” surrounding us today – from escalating climate change and mass extinction of species to the destruction of livelihoods, wars and other humanitarian catastrophes?
How are the dominant ways of framing these interconnected challenges blinding us to what lies behind and affecting our individual and collective responses to them? What perspectives, new or old, could set the stage for a more humble and safe trajectory for our species and the more-than-human-world on planet earth?
In this half day symposium you will be able to explore these questions together with artists, scholars and actors from a variety of fields, with a wide range of experiences and perspectives.
The Symposium is arranged by CEMUS at Uppsala University and SLU in collaboration with the Sigtuna Foundation
