We live in transitional times in search for new value systems. This goes along with turmoil, uncertainty, lack of confidence and fear.
From the transition perspective, crises are a chance for change since existing institutions are pushed and many embark on a quest for new values and norms.
In this lecture Jan Rotmans, Professor of Sustainable Transitions and System Innovations, EU Rotterdam, will tell us that a radical change, a transition, is necessary in order to create a better and sustainable society. A new set of rules has to be transmitted to the people involved in any project, region or sector, so that they can give it a swing into a more sustainable direction.
The lecture will take place at the Aula (Minderbroedersberg 4-6) on Monday 04 November at 20h00.
