This week, Engineers Without Borders KTH is hosting a series of lunch lectures concerning sustainability in different fields like technology, innovation and engineering. It is a way to raise students’ awareness in their roles as change makers related to the UN’s sustainability goals.
Over the five days of this weeks, the lunch lectures will feature speakers from academia and industry, each one focusing on a specific issue related to sustainability, like waste management, artificial intelligence, energy, etc.
These types of events are a great way to learn something new and open your mind on something different than what you are studying everyday. Plus, the people leading the talks are usually very inspiring people who are experts in their field, and it’s truly a chance to have such easy access to great minds in the school environment. For example, the first Swedish astronaut to go to space, Christer Fuglesang, will be giving a lecture on the role of space science in the fight against climate change. Talk about inspiration!
