We have invited professor Sally Randles from Manchester Metropolitan University to talk about the need for institutional transformation for us as a university to be able to make essential contributions to a more sustainable development in the world.
Sally is Chair in Sustainability and Innovation at the Faculty of Business and Law at Manchester Metropolitan University. Her research areas are sustainability, responsible innovation and the organisational perspectives on these subjects.
As part of her research, Sally has conducted a thorough case study of Arizona State University, which has worked with sustainability as a focal point for the activities of the university for the past 15 years. Sally will draw on the results of this study in her presentation, but also on her experience with English and other universities.
At the webinar, you can also hear about SDU's and DTU's experience with their SDG and sustainability work.
The event is organised by SDU as part of the sustainability network between Danish universities. During the second part of the meeting, there will be an opportunity to share knowledge and experience in small groups in relation to concrete challenges with the sustainability work across Danish universities.
You can sign up for the whole program, only part one or only part two.
