This is one of six parallel PhD courses of the annual Bergen Summer Research School (BSRS). This interdisciplinary venue for exploring some of the greatest challenges of our time attract around one hundred PhD candidates, researchers and policy makers every year.
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 Agenda 2030: Poverty, Climate Change and Sustainability 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.
