  • Systeem-innovatie voor duurzaamheid: wat dan en hoe dan?

    18-05-2018

    Een internationaal symposium over mogelijkheden voor lokale duurzame ontwikkeling en verandering.

    ICIS, het International Centre for Integrated Assessment and Sustainable development aan de Universiteit Maastricht, opent haar deuren tijdens haar 20-jarig jubileum. Er zijn verschillende interactieve lezingen en workshops in het Engels en Nederlands gebaseerd op (een deel van) het werk dat ICIS doet (duurzame verandering van de maatschappij, de “nieuwe economie”, slimme duurzame steden, living en urban labs, waarde (creatie) en waarden, hoe pak je duurzaamheidsproblemen aan en innovatie voor duurzame ontwikkeling).

    Natuurlijk is er ook voldoende ruimte om te netwerken en voor uitwisseling van ideeën.

    De dag wordt afgesloten met een feestelijke receptie.
    We hopen u te verwelkomen bij ICIS op 25 mei!
