Sustainable Transition Together - Talks & Tunes at DTU Skylab

Sustainable Transition Together - Talks & Tunes at DTU Skylab
Does industry, authorities, organizations and innovation hubs succeed in enabling a generation of purpose-driven youth to contribute to sustainable transition? Join us for an evening of short talks, intense panel discussions, music and light dinner.

Join us for an evening of short talks and intense panel discussions to learn, connect, influence and jointly set new ambitions on the role of, and mechanisms required for, students to contribute to sustainable transition.

Action-led and purpose-driven young students are ready to use their innovative minds and skills to address societal challenges,  to learn from the experience and become today and tomorrow’s sustainable changemakers. Numerous sustainability-labelled initiatives have been initiated to involve students during their studies in new settings, partnerships and formats such as hackathons, innovation competitions, youth movements and conferences - but are those the valuable formats for all, and could we be more ambitious together?

We will set the stage for some of the leading Danish-based organizations and profiles driving the sustainability agenda, to engage with the audience in a critical and visionary discussion on ‘what's missing’: Inviting the panel and participants to set new ambitions to student hubs, in partnership with industry, authorities, investors, organizations and others, on how to enable students to influence, accelerate and disrupt local/global green transition. The innovation hub’s, DTU Skylab and Student innovation House, will share their experience and critical reflections on partnership driven sustainability programmes and jointly commit to follow up on the panel and participants call for action.

The event is the first of several between IDA Process, Student Innovation House and DTU Skylab. The event will take place in the newly opened creative facilities of DTU Skylab and conclude with music, networking and a sustainable light dinner.

We offer bus transportation from IDA, Kalvebod Brygge 31 (15.45), via CBS, Solbjerg Plads 3 (16.15), to DTU Skylab and return after the event.
