Op 5 maart 2020 vindt de jaarlijkse Universiteit Utrecht Pathways to Sustainability conference plaats. Het thema is 'Accelerating the Transformation'.
Every day we are confronted by alarming news of the climate crisis, vast biodiversity loss, faster than predicted thawing ice and permafrost, natural resource shortages, and rising social inequality. We are increasingly aware that the pathways to sustainability require an extraordinary effort: where will the needed energy come from? How do we nurture the acceleration of promising trends? How do we speed up to achieve societal, scientific and political breakthroughs while ensuring socially fair outcomes?
