SKH is hosting the ISDRS research conference 2022

16/11/2020

The 2022 ISDRS annual research conference is held in Stockholm and will be hosted by Stockholm University of the Arts together with University College Stockholm, Ersta Sköndal Bräcke University College, Swedish Defence University, Stockholm School of Economics and Södertörn University.

The International Sustainable Development Research Society (ISDRS) is a global network that brings together academic research into sustainability with how it is used in practice. The 2022 ISDRS annual research conference will be held in Stockholm and the overarching theme is the cultural dimension of sustainable development. Four key concepts are art, culture, human rights and courage.

– The societal challenges that we are facing can no longer be commented upon, managed or solved on solely a scientific basis. A much more holistic approach is necessary for success, such as allowing scholarship in science and the arts to provide mutual inspiration. We have done a great deal of research on sustainable development over a number of years, and now we want to create additional knowledge by giving new groups the chance to form and for subjects to come together in a way that was not previously given, says Peter Dobers, professor of business administration at Södertörn University and initiator of the 2022 conference.

In the runup to the summer of 2021, the six hosts (Stockholm University of the Arts, University College Stockholm, Ersta Sköndal Bräcke University College, Swedish Defence University, Stockholm School of Economics and Södertörn University) are offering a number of meetings and seminars at which researchers will have the opportunity to build new relationships and talk about ideas or ongoing projects with links to research in sustainability. The idea is to start laying a foundation for what will later become the seminars and lectures that bring the participants together.

9 December at 11.00–16.00 SKH is hosting a seminar. More information about the seminar, schedule and content, will be announced soon.
