Lecture & workshop:

What can we do about the climate impact of the Health care sector?

Tuesday: 14.00-17.00

Arvid Carlsson, Medicinaregatan 3

Guests from the Centre for Sustainable Health Care, world leading within its field, introduce to how health care and climate changes are interconnected as well as presents examples on how the health and care sector can reduce its climate impact, for example via changing materials and more efficient communications between different health care units. The lecture will be followed by an interactive workshop.

Speakers: Prof Rachel Stancliffe and Dr. Frances Mortimer

The Centre for Sustainable Health Care is a British foundation established in 2008 by the researchers Sir Muir Gray (University of Oxbord) and Prof. Rachel Stancliffe (London School of Economics). They host assignments from the British NHS and has developed sustainable solutions for different parts of the health and care sector, as well as pedagogics for, among others, medical, dental, nursing and public science educational programs. Their work has been published in among others, the Lancet.

Näckrostimmen: Vad har arkeologi med hållbarhet att göra?

De hållbarhetsutmaningar som världen står inför kräver att vi vänder på varje sten för att hitta idéer om lösningar.
Utifrån den nya boken The Oxford Handbook of Historical Ecology and Applied Archaeology diskuterar docent
Christian Isendahl
några tankar kring vilken roll arkeologi och kunskapen om det förflutna kan spela för hur vi bättre
kan förstå vad en hållbar framtid innebär.

Om föreläsaren: Christian Isendahl är docent inom arkeologi vid Instutitionen för historiska studier vid Göteborgs universitet.

Värd: Naturvetenskapliga fakulteten

Let’s talk about the ocean and climate change

Tuesday: 12.00-13.30

Hörsalen Geovetarcentrum, Ängemarken 6

12.00 Lunch for the 50 first

12.30 Panel starts

The ocean is our planet’s largest carbon sink and plays a key role in regulating the climate. So does the cryosphere— the frozen water of the Earth. However, increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide is acidifying our ocean and the polar landscape has been quickly changing during the last decades. Why is the ocean-atmosphere interaction in the Southern Ocean relevant to glaciers in the Arctic and seafood in the west coast of Sweden? In this multidisciplinary panel discussion where physical oceanography and marine ecology meet photography and international law, listen to what can be done to drive actions and changes towards a sustainable future.
