Acting for sustainability through knowledge and collaboration

The core task of Gothenburg Centre for Sustainable Development (GMV) is to create and facilitate cooperation, between and within Chalmers and the University of Gothenburg, with an aim to generate and practically implement knowledge about sustainable development. In order to develop solutions to global challenges, we bring academic disciplines together to create new knowledge. Moreover, practical implementation of knowledge requires collaboration between academia and other actors in society. To this end, we create meeting places and bring together different types of expertise in order to promote sustainable development within research, education and cooperation.

  • Six students received this year's Sustainability Thesis Award, GUSTA

    [27 Nov 2020] Six students at the University of Gothenburg were given this year's GUSTA award for their outstanding theses written on topics related to sustainable development. The winning theses covered a broad range of topics across several programmes in various faculties which include: Political Science, Innovation & Industrial Management and Global studies.

  • A Global Sustainable Futures Event: "Research collaboration in Low- and Middle-Income Countries - findings, lessons and ways forward for implementing Agenda 2030"

    [17 Nov 2020] Collaboration across national borders and academic disciplines is more important than ever. In practice, however, international collaboration often faces challenges that arise from differences in contexts, incentives and traditions. We are convinced that these can be overcome and that we can do more and do better. Global Sustainable Futures is staging a conference on topics that bring together people from different academic backgrounds and contexts with a common interest in collaborating across borders in order to learn from each other, share experiences and overcome obstacles.
