Public Seminar: Bringing Sustainability Science to Life

26th April 2018

The University of Gibraltar invites you to an evening seminar by influential visiting academic, Professor Tim O’Riordan.

Thursday 3rd May 2018
Europa Point Campus, University of Gibraltar

About the Seminar:

Sustainability science is a process of community wide engagement geared to bettering people and nature for ever. It is both transformative and experiential. Its purpose is to shift personal and societal behaviour and institutions in the direction of sustainability. To achieve this requires a progressive shift in the role and characteristics of learning and the research. The seminar will explore these concepts through the exposure of case examples.
