CEMUS Forum & Outreach: Call for open events, activities and projects

Do you have an idea for an event you want to organize? An inspiring guest that you want invite for a lecture? A critical seminar series? A podcast extravaganza? A topic you want to discuss and learn more about with others? Or a more long term sustainability project you want to start?

CEMUS Forum and Outreach are happy to announce that you now can submit your ideas for open events, activities and projects!

Who can submit an idea for an event, activity or project?
This call is open for students, staff, alumni and the general public all over the world with interest in CEMUS topics, such as sustainability, climate, environmental justice, critical pedagogy, student-led education and so many more issues, see examples from CEMUS courses here www.cemus.uu.se/education.

What you bring and contribute with
You individually or in a group bring the actual idea of what you want to do and organize, when it should be organized, where it will (online, outside, socially distanced inside) and all the practicalities such as inviting guests or setting up the space you use. You also invite people and spread the word about the event, activity or project.

The format is in no way limited – open lectures, critical seminars and creative workshops, fun podcasts, board game development, art exhibitions, forest walks, community work – the only thing the university can’t support is promotion of specific businesses or products.

The topics and issues that you want to explore, focus on and discuss can be very varied, see CEMUS courses here www.cemus.uu.se/education and be inspired by current and past outreach activities and projects here www.cemus.uu.se/outreach.

What CEMUS can contribute with
CEMUS can support you in developing your idea, finding guests to invite, finding a suitable space (and paying for the space, students can rent rooms at the university for free), setting up online Zoom-meetings and Facebook live broadcasts, promoting the event via via CEMUS web page, social media and networks. CEMUS also has a professional sound system for outside or indoor use and live-streaming, video conference equipment.

CEMUS don’t pay for the time you volunteer and can’t pay for guests, material or other things you might need.

There’s no fixed deadline – some ideas might be more long term ongoing projects, while some events might be sparked by more fast-moving things happening in the world and around you. The form that you fill out will be reviewed by Daniel Mossberg, Lead Coordinator CEMUS Forum and Outreach and you will get an answer via email within one week.
