How to Sustain: Sustainability and its Societal Implications

Sustainability is a concept frequently discussed in the public sphere, but what do we really mean by it? This discussion will examine the interdisciplinary approaches across ecology, economics, politics and the often-neglected angle of culture that can help scientists and academics clearly communicate ideas around sustainability and its implications to the public, increasing awareness and understanding of this current and broad-ranging topic.
Please join civil engineer Dr Elli-Maria Charalampidou and historian Dr Nikolaos Papadogiannis, who will lead an open discussion with the public on how to address sustainability in a nuanced manner.
