This mini-series podcast is led by the student body at IIIEE and is set to feature conversations with people from the institute and its alumni. The podcast covers a range of topics, including energy policy, urban sustainability, food systems, and academic entrepreneurship. In each episode, the current hosts, Inés and Malek, explore different perspectives and delve into the intricacies of sustainable development.
The podcast is part of a wider student-led communication initiative that aims to promote actionable knowledge about sustainability beyond the physical borders of IIIEE. As such, it is a testament to the commitment of the institute to providing empowerment and actionable knowledge to its international student body. In fact, it is the first student-led sustainability podcast at Lund University, which is ranked 12th in sustainability studies worldwide. This underscores the pioneering role of IIIEE students in promoting sustainable development in their local and global communities.
The podcast's name, "Sustainably Speaking Beyond the Aula," is inspired by the language spoken at the institute and the discussions that take place in its iconic Aula classroom. This mini-series has already covered the student conference, hosted roundtables with students, reflected on their studies and takeaways, and shared inspiration from their predecessors. With such a promising start, we can't wait for more episodes to come.
So, whether you're a student, a sustainability professional, or simply interested in learning more about sustainability, be sure to tune in to "Sustainably Speaking Beyond the Aula" and join the conversation.
