On Thursday, October 26, the Embassy of Sweden in Washington hosted a seminar ”Research and Innovation Addressing Societal Challenges” with five leading Swedish universities: Umeå University, Uppsala University, Stockholm University, University of Gothenburg and Lund University.

Georgia Destouni was one of the speakers in a panel discussing key questions on sustainability impacts of local actions across sectors, countries and world regions, such as:

• How do local resource choices affect global water, food and energy security under urbanization and climate change?

• How can research chart consistent and effective cross-border pathways to global sustainability?
