In an era of increased uncertainty, pandemics, climate change and habitat loss, of unmitigated exploitation of natural resources amid conflict and poverty – how can we think about, plan and implement sustainable futures? Complex problems require responses that lie at the intersection of different disciplines, generations, cultures, social and political lives and practices. The Sustainable Futures Academy (SFA) is a joint project between the University of Cambridge, the Berlin School of Public Engagement and Open Science, the Museum für Naturkunde and Humboldt Universität zu Berlin. This innovative project connects young people, researchers, and creatives across borders to grapple with the challenges and opportunities of developing a sustainable future.
All outputs are showcased as part of a joint event between the 7 and 10 November 2020 as part of the ESRC Festival of Social Sciences and the Berlin Science Week. All training and workshops take place in a digital space, defying any restrictions or physical limitations during the pandemic.
Participation is free of cost. Deadline for applications is on the 14 September 2020.
