The complex global challenges that we are facing today cannot be explained by physical, environmental and biological causes alone; humans play a central role. Understanding the human factor is fundamental and can only be achieved by investigating the historical, cultural and communication processes in which human life is embedded.
We invite you to explore, share, and learn how we, humans, can be more sustainable through cooperation between businesses, universities, and non-governmental institutions. Join us at the “Sustaining Sustainability” Conference, that will take place on October 7, 2022, at 09:30 WEST (10:30 CEST; 11:30 EEST). You can attend the event live at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Vilnius, or through ZOOM (link is provided upon registration).
Particularly, we will discuss the contribution of social sciences and humanities (SSH) to addressing sustainability issues (based on Sustainable Development Goals). During the SHOUT project, we have implemented various sustainability-fostering methods and activities involving companies, tutors, and students. Through interactive workshops and panel discussions, we want to share the lessons we have learned and want to learn from you, by listening to your story and experience.
Sustainability is a topic for us all. If you work in a business, university, or non-governmental institution, and you are interested in sustainability and its real-life applications, join us in discussing the future, solutions, and possibilities. Students and their perspectives are also welcome!
