Welcome to watch a video documentation of this event here.

What challenges remain most urgent for the environmental humanities? During the panel, each panellist pitches a concrete “project” for future collaboration, and attendees can sign up on the spot to a follow-up meeting that will take the project up. The Seed Box will contribute [5000 SEK] as “seed money” for each of these future projects.

Estimated running time: 75 min
