The Sustainability Science Dialogue series was successfully launched at the University of Neuchâtel on 28.09.2021. This event series serves to substantiate research needs and encourage collaborative projects based on the themes suggested by the Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences.
The topic of our first event in collaboration with the University of Neuchâtel was «Sustainable mitigation and adaptation to climate change». The main question was: What contribution can science and researchers make towards a more sustainable society? By bringing together scientists across faculties, we could increase awareness of ongoing research activities related to climate change, foster exchange and encourage the forging of new partnerships. The presentations of the 25 participants were grouped thematically according to the Swiss Academies’ for sustainability research and illustrated how UniNE’s researchers are working on climate change-related topics from diverse angles.
