Promoting social change for sustainability. Aspects of education and informal finance

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We will share and discuss examples of social transformation and sustainability.
There will first be a school visit to exemplify the implementation of ESD aiming to promote students agency for change in society. We will also watch the documentary ‘’Who Runs the World?!’ Women and Informal Finances in South Africa’; a result of the SASUF collaboration between Umeå University and the University of Zululand which examines informal financial markets and the role of women from an interdisciplinary perspective. The screening will be followed by a session of Q&A and poster presentations.
After lunch we will arrange small group discussions to share and deepen experiences regarding activities promoting agency for social change in society.
