Great participation during Sustainability Week

Sustainability Week in Lund has established itself as a recurring meeting place for challenging issues and innovative solutions. This year's program included over 70 events and gathered a few thousand participants in total.

In mid-April, Lund was bubbling with sustainability issues. Project manager Stina Lundkvist breathes a sigh of relief after a successful week.

"We are very pleased with all the commitment during Sustainability Week, both from organizers and participants. It has been a well-attended week and we hope that many have gained new insights and contacts, says Stina Lundkvist. 

All of the university's faculties have participated with events and research expertise.

"Sustainability Week is a great way to highlight research at the University in a popular science way and in collaboration with various societal actors. Coordinating such an extensive theme week requires careful planning, but we also see that the efforts have major effects in the form of new and in-depth collaborations," says Ann Åkerman, Executive Director of the Sustainability Forum at Lund University.

'Since its inception in 2017, Sustainability Week has been arranged together with Lund Municipality. The municipality's project manager Erika Frimanson highlights the value of collaboration in the municipality. 

"We want to take advantage of the knowledge that exists at the university and link it to the municipality's activities. That research, the municipality, the business community and citizens meet is the most important thing about Sustainability Week, says Erika Frimanson.
