Agenda 2030: Poverty, Climate Change and Sustainability

Agenda 2030: Poverty, Climate Change and Sustainability

PHD COURSE at Bergen Summer Research School 2017. Application deadline: 1 March 2017

12-22 June 2017 | University of Bergen, Norway

In its Agenda 2030, the United Nations defines the eradication of poverty in all its forms and dimensions as "the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development". The document defines climate change as the other great challenge of our time due to its effects on present and future generations and its unprecedented and disproportioned impact on the world's poorest and most vulnerable.

The main objective of this course is to analyse these challenges and to provide PhD candidates with tools to address them. Transdisciplinary research (TDR) and more specifically, Sustainability Science, offer the possibility to address urgent societal problems focusing on the transition to sustainability.
