Open lunch lecture: Futures with multiple targets: scenarios beyond GDP growth

internal events | seminars, workshops |

Bring your own lunch to this open lecture on futures studies and research. The event is taking place in Ultuna but will be streamed on a video link to the other campuses. You can also join via your own computer or phone.

The lecture will take its point of departure in the research program “Beyond GDP growth: Scenarios for sustainable building and planning” and use this to exemplify and discuss methods for developing scenarios that fulfil several targets. In this project, four scenarios were developed in a transdisciplinary setting. The scenarios explore sustainability strategies for the Swedish society when economic growth is not seen as an end in itself.

Ulrika Gunnarsson-Östling is associate professor (sv. docent) at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Department of Sustainable Development, Environmental Science and Engineering (SEED). Ulrika has a research interest in normative futures studies, which she sees as a fruitful way to explore and discuss what social-ecological and just development could mean. Ulrika is particularly interested in sustainable urban development.

This lecture is part of the joint project Futures Lab by SLU Urban Futures and SLU Future FoodRead more about the project Futures Lab.
