1 December 2018: At the annual conference of Pathways to Sustainability all sustainability related researchers and partners come together. The upcoming conference will take place on 24 January 2019 at TivoliVredenburg, Utrecht. Check out the full programme of this year’s conference and register now.

The programme of the upcoming conference features keynotes from Sheila Jasanoff (Professor of Science and Technology Studies, Harvard University), Jeroen Willemsen (founder of the Green Protein Alliance), and Diederik Samsom (chair Klimaattafel Gebouwde Omgeving, nuclear physicist and former politician).

Harvard Professor Sheila Jasanoff challenges the two main visions to achieve a more sustainable world by introducing a new imaginary of the ‘un-modern’. Diederik Samsom uses storytelling to take us on a journey to sustainable futures, based on his varied experience with sustainable energy in the energy sector, Dutch politics, and at Greenpeace. And Jeroen Willemsen, founder of the plant-based ‘chicken’ producing company Ojah, argues that we need to restore the worldwide protein balance to ensure food security.

In the afternoon we offer several interactive break-out sessions, which are organised by the hubs of Pathways to Sustainability. They cover the energy transition, future food, future deltas and circular cities. In addition, we have a session on the circular economy in relation to the plastic soup, and one on the creation of a sustainable campus. We close off with an interactive discussion about the role of the university in the transition to a sustainable society.

In between these programme elements you can visit the Sustainable Marketplace, representing all kinds of initiatives within Utrecht University related to sustainability. And during the vegetarian lunch and other breaks there is plenty of opportunity to get in touch with fellow sustainability experts.

The programme of the Pathways to Sustainability conference 2019 consists of a plenary morning programme, a delicious vegetarian lunch, interactive break-out sessions, and a closing panel discussion. In between these programme elements, and at the end of the conference there is plenty of opportunity for networking and drinks at the Sustainable Marketplace.

The description of the programme, including the interactive break-out sessions that you can choose from. Participation in the conference is free of charge, but registration is mandatory.

19 Februari 2018: Prof Maarten Hajer, scientific director of the Pathways to Sustainability programme explains what he hopes to achieve in the next couple of years and how the Utrecht University hubs will help to turn these ambitions into reality.

Sustainability research at Utrecht University is exceptionally strong and covers many different fields. Having the unique combination of top-notch fundamental natural science research, modelling, and scholarship in innovation, transition, governance and finance, Utrecht University, as a broad research university, is at the forefront of innovation in sustainability research.

The focus will be on identifying and understanding transformative pathways in four hubs: Towards Industry with Negative Emissions – Future Food: Pathways towards Healthy Planet Diets – Transforming Infrastructures for Sustainable Cities – Water, Climate and Future Deltas.
