In June 2017, CROP, together with local and international partners, will organise one of the parallel PhD level courses that will make up this year’s Bergen Summer Research School (BSRS) at the University of Bergen.
Global Challenges is the overarching theme for the summer school, and from 12-22 June 2017, international experts will gather in Bergen to explore some of the greatest challenges facing contemporary society.
Agenda 2030: Poverty, Climate Change and Sustainability is the title of the parallel course coordinated by CROP. The main objective of the course is to analyse these three global challenges within an integrated scientific framework and to provide students with tools with which to address them. Transdisciplinary research (TDR) and more specifically, Sustainability Science, offer the possibility to address urgent societal problems with a particular focus on the the transition to sustainability.
The course will include research and educational modules that will explore the theoretical and empirical links relating to some of the biggest challenges of our time; poverty, climate change, and sustainable development.
