Hamburg Study Trip: wrap-up

In an age characterized by environmental issues and concerns, world leaders engage in strong political debates to try to find solutions to limit the impact of our actions and curb the negative effects of climate change. A city in Germany has placed sustainability at the core of its activities and it is now part of its DNA. This year's study trip to Hamburg allowed us to explore this topic in all its facets, and engage in interesting discussions with professionals of different industries.

Leverage Points 2019 at Leuphana University Lüneburg, Wednesday-Friday, February 6-8, 2019

Leuphana University in Lüneburg, which we visited during the recent Hamburg Study Trip, organizes an international conference that will explore the leverage points that can lead to sustainability transformation: how do we transform ourselves, our science, our institutions, our interventions and our societies for a better future?

The conference will offer a number of keynote speakers combinted with inspiring and provocative poster presentations and will revolve around a variety of core themes:

  • Re-structuring institutions for transformative change
  • Re-connecting people and nature as a deep leverage point
  • Re-thinking how we know and act in relation to sustainability transformations
  • Systems thinking and complexity as tools for transformation
  • Transformative research practices in sustainability science

We would like to extend the invitation to our Alumni community in and around Germany, or those of you who plan to be in the area.
