Making Change Happen Conference Theme

It is abundantly clear that halting the climate crisis before reaching irreversible tipping points is crucial. Alarming messages reach us in an ever-higher frequency, but we can also see change occurring. Speculation abound about ‘social tipping points’, whether it is climate activism, technological development, ecosystem restoration, or changing appreciations in the financial world.

This conference brings to the stage the voices, experiences, ambitions and concerns of a diverse range of actors from within and outside academia, and across generations and cultures to stimulate discussion and decisive action to make change happen towards sustainable futures - whatever it takes?

Today the issue is not to point at the magnitude of the problems of climate change or biodiversity loss; the issue is to see who is in the position to cause the societal transformation needed or what may help get us on a trajectory towards a more sustainable future.
