Monday 15/11 - Friday 19/11

This is the side-event program for Act Sustainable 2021

Welcome to Act Sustainable!

On this page you´ll find the side-events program for Act Sustainable 2021. The week stretches from Monday 15/11 to Friday 19/11, and so does the side-events program.

Besides the official program Act Sustainable also feature side events. The side events don’t necessarily follow the same rules as the events in the official program. They may vary in language, time, place, and targeted audience.

 

All the side-events are gathered on this page and presented in chronological order. Activities longer than one day are presented on the date it starts. For instance, a week-long exhibition starting on Monday will be placed first even though you can visit it on Friday as well.

 

So be sure you check out all the side-events for the whole week here!

Who can register, and how?​

If registration is needed you´ll register for each event separately and you can register for as many as you like. All information you need to participate is located on these pages. 

 

All events in the official program are open for all students and all staff members at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg. Side-events may be open to an exclusive audience. If so, this will be clearly stated in the information about the event.

Collaboration in a (post-) pandemic world – the need to reconnect and rethink priorities

Welcome to Global Sustainable Futures second annual online conference 2021​! The past 18 months brought us new insights, new habits and new ways of working together. Keeping respectfully in mind the huge personal losses of lives, livelihoods and relationships that millions of people have experienced, the pandemic also forced us to re-think our priorities.

The transition towards more sustainable paths for development has added a focus on research and policy collaboration. The pandemic has made the global inequalities visible – be it health, food, gender, or access to internet – and at the same time shown us that we share the same world, with shared development goals, challenges and missions.

Time: 9.00 - 12.00

Location: Zoom

Arbetskraftsexploatering i ett samtida Sverige och Göteborg.
Vår tids slaveri?

Rättspraktiken bjuder in till ett seminarium på temat arbetskraftsexploatering. Den ideella organisationen Räddningsmissionen som är en av Rättspraktikens samarbetspartners är initiativtagare och möter i sitt arbete EU-migranter och papperslösa som på olika sätt arbetar under oskäliga arbetsvillkor. Frågan om arbetskraftsexploatering berör flera av de globala hållbarhetsmålen enligt Agenda 2030, exempelvis målen om anständiga arbetsvillkor, utrotandet av fattigdom och minskad ojämlikhet. Under seminariet kommer vi att titta närmare på den straffrättsliga regleringen kring människohandel och människoexploatering, men kommer även att belysa frågan ur andra perspektiv. Inbjudna gäster är Daniel Åman och Daria Bogdanska från Räddningsmissionen, Emilie Holmström Ryffé och Åsa Ekman som är regionkoordinatorer mot prostitution och människohandel i Region Väst samt Thomas Ahlstrand vice chefsåklagare vid internationella åklagarkammaren. Arrangemanget görs i samarbete med Centrum för forskning om arbete och sysselsättning (WE).

Time: 15:00 - 17:00

Location: Volvosalen, Handelshögskolan vid Göteborgs Universitet, Vasagatan 1, 405 30 Göteborg

Positive Energy District - Stakeholder engagement

The project PED-ID will develop an innovative knowledge-based stakeholder process for PED areas and assessment methods to use information for the stakeholder process, by which decision-makers are provided at an early stage with improved information about how best to achieve Positive Energy District status, the options and the impacts.
This process will be tried and tested in three real EU Living Labs, all potential PED initiatives, with focus on the participation process and the identification of necessary data. By applying this process, the objective is to accelerate the rate of achieving Positive Energy District status and to accomplish the goal of 100 PED sites in Europe by 2025.

 

On this seminar we will focus on the stakeholder engagement process applied at the Swedish Living Lab and the importance of communication in the process, how, when and with whom you communicate. 

Time: 10:00 - 11.00
