Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Transitions towards more sustainable pathways are urgently needed in all areas of life, spanning different geographic scales and corresponding governance levels. What might be a solution for some, cannot always be used as a blue print somewhere else, and in the worst case it can even create additional problems for others. How can we make the necessary interventions in a context sensitive, just and safe way for the entire planet? What is there to be learned from technological solutions that have been deployed in the past, but have then caused new challenges?

Engaging in these dialogues is what the 'Environmental Engagements: talks'-series hosted by the Environmental Research Network aims at: Giving a platform to researchers from diverse backgrounds conducting cutting-edge environmental research at the University of Vienna, who are ready to meet a broad audience beyond disciplinary boundaries through highly timely and solution-focused exchanges.
