Exploring, widening and contributing to the green transition

Green Social Sciences and Humanities Research

An event organised by the University of Copenhagen’s Green Solutions Center (GSC). The event will be held in English. 

Join us on August 22, 2022 from 9:00 – 12:00 at Southern Campus/Søndre Campus

There is an urgent need for innovative green solutions that address the climate and environmental crisis. The best and most durable and viable solutions are obtained by actively involving all parts of our society.

This event is cross-disciplinary - and relevant for all UCPH disciplines including Faculty of Science. Learn and discuss more about green social sciences and humanities research and how these disciplines contribute to solid research-based solutions to imminent challenges related to climate change, sustainability and the environmental crisis.

We hope to see many researchers from both Natural Sciences (Faculty of Science & Faculty of Health) and Social Sciences/ Humanities (Faculty of Humanities, Faculty of Social Sciences, Faculty of Theology and Faculty of Law) as the aim of the event is to facilitate more inter and cross-disciplinary collaboration within green research at UCPH.

All researchers (including PhD-students) at UCPH are welcome.

Since there is limited space (100 participants), we recommend that you register early.

Please register here.
