The Emerging Climate Emergency: What Now for University Education?

16 sep 2021 14:00 16 sep 2021 15:30 ENG

Runa Falck (KLIMA 200, UiB), Jakob Grandin (The Collaboratory, UiB), Roger Strand (Master in sustainability, UiB) and Lea Andrea Igland Røys (Student Society, UiB) in conversation with Håvard Haarstad (Leader of the Climate Pillar and Director of CET). 

The recent assessment report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) underlines the emerging climate situation, now with higher degree of scientific certainty and greater urgency. What does this mean for how we develop educational programmes and teach students in the university?

We will discuss how to rethink education in light of the climate emergency. What courses, pedagogical methods, skills and approaches do we need?

The panel debate is organised under the climate pillar of the Bergen School of Global Studies (BSGS), led by the Centre for Climate and Energy Transformation (CET). The debate will provide input for BSGS’s work.

This debate is part of a series of events that addresses the global challenges at the heart of Bergen School of Global Studies: ClimateGovernanceHealthInequality and Migration.

The  debate will be moderated by Håvard Haarstad (Leader of the Climate Pillar and Director of CET).
