Factivism - Get Your Facts straight!

This year´s theme is as relevant and important as ever and carries a great academic tradition. Through knowledge and a better understanding of the world, we have the tools to shape and change it, to be something better. Agenda 2030 and the Global Goals are an attempt at making things better with a holistic approach never before seen on this scale. We all have to chip in with research, practice and action.

Act Sustainable - A sustainability week with heritage

The origin of Act Sustainable can be traced all the way back to 2005 and an endeavour from the University of Gothenburg to raise the students knowledge and understanding of sustainable development. Several years before there were any global goals for sustainability. Nowadays the aim is to bring the universities closer together in multidisciplinary perspectives on sustainable development through inspiration, and knowledge. The students are, and always have been the weeks most important part. That¿s why you can participate in a lunch event each day arranged by the students sustainability organizations.

The week is organized and administrated by Gothenburg Centre for Sustainable Development, GMV, at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg.
