Workshop: How can Dalarna University be more active in Borlänge’s aim to be Climate Neutral 2030?

Next Research Collegium for the Advancement of Sustainability (RECAST)-seminar will be held as a joint workshop with the Innovation Team for Climate Neutral Borlänge.
Date: , kl 13:30 - 16:00
Location: Campus Borlänge
Locale: Room 330

Borlänge has ambitiously chosen to challenge themselves to be climate neutral to 2030. As part of this they are running an Innovation Team that has regular workshops, with the aim of working together to develop solutions and ideas to make Borlänge climate neutral. It uses an innovation process that works with multiple stakeholders and is solution oriented. It contains representatives from the municipality, its own companies as well as private companies and civil society. Since the start of this project 30 companies have asked to join the process.

We now invite all PhD-student and employees to a joint workshop with the Innovation Team to find out more about the challenge and processes that are active – and most importantly to start being creative in thinking about how our university can take a more active role in this adventure.

The seminar will be conducted in English, but group discussions will be divided into both English and Swedish speaking groups, to facilitate fruitful conversations.
