Dear colleagues,

Hope your holidays were good and restful, so that you are starting the year of 2020 full of energy.

Sustainability week will, for the 4th consecutive year, take place this spring on 20-24 April. Events of all kinds and sizes are being planned, and the organizers would love your participation and/or input! If you have an idea, please contact Ludwig Bengtsson Sonesson. This year there is a special focus on four themes: The road to (net)zero emissions, Can we afford the future? Living in the sustainable city and Sustainable land use.

Please note that RQ20 plans for Lund University site visits during the time period 4-8 May 2020. It is advisable not to book other activities during this period.

The CEC is recruiting! Read more about the open positions at the CEC web page.

Best wishes,
Cerina, Yann and Lina

1426 Kim thumbnail
Kimberly Nicholas - Senior lecturer
Keywords: Climate mitigation, Sustainable land use, Wine, Food systems

1. In a collaboration with Yann Clough and two colleagues, we analyzed over 12,000 scientific abstracts from the last 50 years to show an increasing focus on technical solutions (increasing production) to feed the world, a concurrent drop in considering the role of population, and a consistent, low focus on dietary demand, although more plant-based diets have substantial potential to improve human health and decrease environmental damage. You find the publication in Global Food Security here.

2. I enjoy the stimulating discussions at seminars and retreats, and the chance for new perspectives in interdisciplinary collaborations.

About CEC Fellows
Centre for Environmental and Climate Research, CEC, invites all scientists, working at Lund University and active in the centre’s fields of research, to be part of the CEC Fellows. With the aim of promoting new interdisciplinary research endeavors and encouraging bottom-up influence and leadership, the network is created as a meeting place for collective expertise and as a forum for exchange of ideas amongst researchers. If you are not already a member and would like to join, if you have suggestions for the development of the fellowship, or any news to add to the Newsletter, please contact Cerina Wittbom.
