New LUCSUS’ Blog Initiative to Forward Discussion on Sustainability
LUCSUS is launching a new blog initiative to highlight various aspects of sustainability research and teaching. Over the course of 12 months, individual researchers will write on themes such as research methods, field work, pedagogy, impact and outreach, research papers and conferences.
- We want to create a dialogue on sustainability. What research methods are used by researchers; how is field work being done, and how do you teach sustainability?, says Emily Boyd, Director of LUCSUS.
- It is also important to dicuss impact: how do you make the best impact in sustainability? How are other people working?
The ambition is to use the blogs to reach out to researchers in both Sweden and other countries, and to create an arena for a wider discussion on sustainability. The blogs will also function as a kind of a reference material to be used within the centre itself.
- We hope that by the end of these 12 months, we will have a number of interesting texts which we can use in different ways, both in teaching and in research, Emily Boyd concludes.
The blogs will be published every couple of weeks as a regular news feature on the LUCSUS’ website and shared across the centre’s social media channels.
