Lectures, events and congresses

The Sustainability Science Centre promotes awareness and discussion of the sustainability challenges facing society – as well as their potential solutions - in the general public. Thus, an important function of the Centre is to host a Sustainability Lecture Series where leading international figures in sustainability are invited to give open lectures. The Series was started in 2011 and builds on the highly successful Climate Lectures Series hosted by the University from 2008 – 2010.

Prior to the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP15), the University of Copenhagen hosted an International Scientific Congress on climate change, 10-12 March 2009 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Furthermore, the Sustainability Science Centre hosted the IARU Sustainability Science Congress in Copenhagen, Denmark 22-24 October 2014.

Upcoming events are announced here:

  • 24 March 2017, 13:30-15:30

    Climate management and communication in a world of “Trumps and Brexits”.

    Sustainability Science Centre, in collaboration with UCPH’s Global Environmental Governance, invite you to a sustainability seminar on 24 March 2017.

    Managing climate change is a global challenge and therefore requires cooperation at a global level. Does the current wave of populism on the political arena change the way we need to be addressing climate change? This question will be addressed by a number of different angles in a series of short presentations, followed by Q + A and dialogue between the audience and panel.
