Annual Meeting - Sustainability and Change
Date: 23- 25 January , 2011
Location: Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden
Our planet is faced with a number of rapid changes over the coming decades. These changes include:
- a changing climate
- growing demand for food
- constraints of resources
- increasing global population and urbanisation
- ageing societies
Although the extent of these changes is difficult to predict, the consequences of not meeting the challenges are all the better known.
In this meeting we will address these key issues through the AGS research initiatives and look for sustainable solutions in the face of change. The meeting includes prominent speakers from industry and society, panels of experts and briefings by AGS researchers on the key issues.
