CEC Fellows March 2019 newsletter
Dear colleagues,

March-April are busy application times, you are welcome to contact Cerina Wittbom for support during the writing of your applications.  

We congratulate Henrik Smith (CEC) and Emily Boyd (LUCSUS) who received funding from Lund University for the interaction initiative (samverkansinitiativ) "LU Land - Land use for a sustainable future". Through collaboration and interaction among scientists and with stakeholders for a duration of three years, three themes will be discussed: (1) What should we use the limited land resource for? (2) How intensively should the landscapes be used? and (3) What instruments and policies are needed to create sustainable land use? Please, contact Cerina Wittbom if you would like to participate.

Don’t miss out on the Sustainability Week – Transforming our world, April 8-13.

Best wishes,
Cerina, Yann and Lina
