Factivism and the Global Goals
This year’s theme is as relevant and important as ever and carries a great academic tradition. Through knowledge and a better understanding of the world, we have the tools to shape and change it, to be something better. Agenda 2030 and the Global Goals are an attempt at making things better with a holistic approach never before seen on this scale. We all have to chip in with research, practice and action.

Learn from each other, act together
Some say that reason is an isolated process. The lonesome thinker chiselling out the perfect argument. Others say it´s a group process flowing with creativity. Arguments crashing, new ideas and perspectives adding to the ever-growing canvas.
However it may be, action for change is best carried out together. Students and student unions have a proud tradition of changing the academic institutions, sometimes even the world, through collective action.
Act Sustainable is Chalmers University of Technology´s and the University of Gothenburg´s annual sustainability week for students, researchers, teachers and staff. The aim is to bring the universities closer together in multidisciplinary perspectives on sustainable
development through inspiration, and knowledge.
