About the course

What are the challenges facing humanity today and in the future? How can we create and rediscover sustainable ways of living on this planet?

During the course we will focus on current global issues, imagine alternative futures and explore strategies for transformational change towards a better future. Throughout the semester, different perspectives and approaches are analyzed and discussed in sessions with knowledgeable and inspiring guest lecturers, in order to offer a multidisciplinary understanding of current sustainability issues and different trajectories into the future. Embarking on this journey of discovery, international and Swedish students will be asked to reflect critically on global challenges that the world is facing in order to imagine alternative sustainable futures. Along the way, students will explore their own role in the causes and solutions of these sustainability challenges.
