The Spring Campus of the University Alliance for Sustainability will deal with the topic of “Connecting Communities for Sustainability: Do Universities Matter?“, critically reflecting on the role of universities as societal actors.
Furthermore the spring campus will discuss the integral function of community engagement. Building and engaging communities to jointly develop and maintain sustainable solutions for society will be of paramount importance in the process of a “Great Transformation”. Within the framework of the UAS the spring campus will also focus on how international networks can connect communities and trigger sustainability engagement.
