Sustainability Week - Transforming our World
Welcome to the Sustainability Week! 
There are seventeen global goals that we must accomplish to secure a sustainable future – we have to transform our world. In order to do that, we need to escape our silos and meet across disciplines, sectors and political divides – Sustainability Week is the platform for those meetings. We invite you to listen, discuss, create and learn throughout the Sustainability Week, April 8–13.

640x640transp Transforming Cities
640x640transp Now, more than ever, cities are the epicentre for rapid development and innovation. The urban population is growing fast, creating a transformative force of citizens but also logistical challenges of transportation, housing and public services. How can we ensure a just and sustainable transition in our cities?

Transforming Food 640x640transp
640x640transp Transforming Food
640x640transp Food is a necessity for survival. After a long trend of decreased world hunger, more people are living in food insecurity – at the same time, 1/3 of food is wasted in the global north. We want to spotlight how food production spans across the sustainability agenda and links to the other 16 goals.

640x640transp Transforming Stories
640x640transp How can we tell a compelling, yet scientifically sound, story of a brighter future and the path that will lead us there? In this theme, we want to highlight great efforts in sustainability science communication and explore how art, games and literature can be used to tell the compelling story needed to transform our world.

Transforming Work/Life 640x640transp
640x640transp Transforming Work/Life
640x640transp To achieve the global goals, major changes are required at community level, group level and individual level. How will these changes affect people's everyday lives? How can we transform our world without stressing people and overuse nature? We look more closely at what difference each of us can make - in our everyday lives, in our work, in our studies and in our spare time.

640x640transp Visualising Sustainability
640x640transp Excellent science has never been more important, but sustainability researchers are struggling to find communicative methods that foster engagement without losing objectiveness or complexity. We highlight some of the initiatives at Lund University that are already thinking outside the box when it comes to scientific communication. The exhibition can be viewed at Magle Konserthus throughout the Sustainability Week.
