SEMINAR: “Transforming institutions and societies: accounts for a sustainable future”
The world is currently facing turbulent times, which present both challenges and opportunities. It is crucial to understand how to transform existing institutions and societies to ensure a sustainable future for everyone. The goal of this seminar is to shed light on this agenda and encourage discussion on the key areas to be focused on for a sustainable future.

The seminar will bring together students, academics, practitioners, and policymakers into four dialogue sessions on the following topics: the role of universities in enabling a sustainable future, public sector accountability, social impact, and knowledge and value creation in the High North. Last but not least, the seminar will highlight the role of individuals in the transformation of institutions, societies and dialogue for a better future.
