During the Spring Campus 2019 we welcomed 166 researchers, students and sustainability experts from 20 countries, over 60 universities and institutions. The event’s topic “The Future is Now: Driving Sustainable Development“ sparked lively discussions among all participants. Coming from different cultural and professional backgrounds, the participants shared their perspectives on the responsibility science and universities should adopt to contribute to the global sustainability discourse.
