Critical Imagination and transformative change

Numerous research reports argue that we need a profound transformation of society if we want to have a healthy planet in the future with good living conditions for all. To be able to understand what such transformations could imply, many academics, activists, civil servants, policy makers, and global movements have increasingly paid attention to how we can re-imagine taken for granted foundations in society, and how we can explore radically different scenarios of our future life.

This seminar sets out to discuss what the opportunities and challenges are to engage in processes of radical and critical re-imagination and transformative change? Especially since many of us simultaneously have to spend much of our time struggling and coping with complex everyday problems and solving urgent issues.
