For this seminar we have invited an alumnus from the master Sustainability Science, Policy and Society: Diederik van Duuren. He is a boundary worker (rare species) active in the water sector. One the one hand, he has a corporate role as a strategy and innovation advisor: implementing sustainability from strategy to action at WML (Water Maatschappij Limburg). On the other hand, he is an external PhD researcher at ICIS (UM) focused on transitioning the water sector towards a more sustainable water system. He will discuss questions such as:
What does mean sustainability in practice? Wat are the language barriers between practice and science? How could the water system of the future look like? What do you as a sustainability professional offer to society?
