The course addresses a life cycle perspective of sustainability in general, and in specifics from three viewpoints—environmental, social, economic. The core area of work for each PhD student will be their own research domain while addressing sustainability from a life cycle perspective and in each dimension of the triple bottom line. The PhD students will identify and connect relevant societal challenges to their own research topics in order to strengthen their understanding of the wider sustainability implications within their field. The written and presented material will be useful for papers and theses in a near future, especially in regards to societal challenges and UN goals relevant for their research.
Three physical meetings are planned (lunch to lunch), in addition to work in-between the meetings.
