Welcome to a lecture will reflect on the history, present reality and possible future of the western research university.

It will argue that a key task of the university this century will be to enable a profound civilisational shift to living with a planet that is newly alive to us. The talk will explore how traditional universities and emerging ecoversities are taking up this challenge and make the case for the most radical reinvention of the university since the enlightenment.

Welcome to a mingle and light snacks before the lecture at 17:15 outside the lecture hall.
