SHIFT FORUM series
SHiFT proposes the creation of a transdisciplinary Hub to address existing challenges in advancing timely societal transformations in the face of climate change.
Under the SHIFT plan of initiatives, we are pleased to announce the organization of a permanent seminar that will bring the opportunity to promote the reflection and the debate across diverse partners, invited lecturers and artists. The SHIFT Forum will take place at online platform 1 time per month, according to a timetable that will be disseminated.
SHIFT Forum aims to promote the participation of invited speakers, visionary thinkers acting at different geographical scales, scientific domains, and society sectors, considering the inclusion of several approaches which contribute to discuss and to reflect about a core of themes that allow the link of the following keywords, but that do not end in them themselves: Societal Transformation, Social Science and Humanities, Critical Practice, Transdisciplinary and Climate Resilience.
