Seminar: Together for sustainability: Do we expect too much from science?

On January 11, a seminar: Together for sustainability: Do we expect too much from science? The event was organized by the Embassies of Germany and France and the Austrian Cultural Forum in Poland.

It took place under the patronage of the Polish Academy of Sciences and with participation of the Natural History Museum, Berlin.

The seminar was attended by the director of UCBS- Mariola Zalewska, who also led a workshop on AI and Smart Cities. Our students also participated in this event.

The seminar covered the following topics:

  • Smart/sustainable cities: How do we solve problems where most of the people live?
  • Artificial Intelligence: Is it more than just a new and strong tool?
  • Get it done! Do we just have to listen to science?

The role of science in the necessary transformation of our societies is getting more and more important and due to the climate crisis, the urgency of actions is constantly rising. The need for new efficient tools is obvious. Science can deliver them. But what does this mean for democratic organized societies?

Global Environment and Development (MERGED)- admission start

MERGED admission

The world faces unprecedented problems–natural resources are disappearing, global value chains supply unsustainable products, standard agricultural production systems are outdated, millions live in poverty, and the climate is changing for the worse. Do you want to contribute to solving these problems? Are you looking for a master’s programme combining theories with fieldwork?

Then the MSc programme in Global Environment and Development (MERGED) is your answer! This elite two-year European Mundus Joint Master Degree programme will enable you to handle today’s global challenges concerning the sustainable use of natural resources and developing new agricultural production systems. MERGED is a joint programme developed and implemented by universities in Denmark, Italy, and Poland.

The programme provides MERGED students with coordinated and direct access to high-quality teaching in Europe. And you can use the international research networks of the teaching staff to find topics and supervisors – when you decide on your thesis topic. The first year, all MERGED students are at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark. Besides the many field trips in individual modules, there is a joint spring school where you carry out interdisciplinary fieldwork using the knowledge and tools acquired in the classrooms. In the second year, you choose between the specialisation in Sustainable Environmental Devel opment at the University of Warsaw in Poland and the specialization in Agricultural Development at the University of Milano in Italy.
