Nordic Global Health Talks: Social Sustainability in a Global Health Context

A monthly webinar series about global health and social sustainability from the Nordic universities

The topic of the new Nordic Global Health Talks season is "Social sustainability in a global health context". All talks center around themes relevant to social sustainability and each presenter is asked to present additional learning resources for the individual talk. By the end of the season, 12 unique lectures with accompanying learning resources will be combined into an online learning platform on social sustainability and global health.

Tune in every frist Friday of the month at 10.00 am CET for an inspiring talk.

About Nordic Global Health Talks

Nordic Global Health Talks will open the doors to new and emerging global health challenges and opportunities experienced in the Nordic region and among communities around the world. The talks will provide you with information about new research, and you will be inspired by new methods and approaches representing a diversity of disciplines and sectors. Maybe you will even find people to collaborate with in the future?

Through this webinar series, you will learn about the specific global health capacities, areas of excellence and specialization of the Nordic universities and our global collaborators. By telling about our research, emerging themes within global health and advances in global health education, we hope to show you some of the ways that the Nordic region is attractive within global health – both for studying, working and for doing research.

Each webinar will be 45 minutes, approximately 30 minutes presentation followed by a 15 minutes Q&A. It is free and open to everyone interested.
