Transitions Talks - Democracy

What if we took democracy seriously?

Environmental problems are deeply intertwined with social conflict and poverty. As climate change and resource depletion put increasing pressures on society, more and more people will be forced to migrate in search for means of survival. At the same time, global collaboration, solidarity and democracy is threatened by the rise of right-wing nationalism – refugees are treated as problems, when they are nothing but human beings that flee problems. In this seminar, we highlight the interdependence of (re)democratization and sustainability transitions, and discuss how a democratic perspective can support efforts to promote sustainable change.

Date and time: May 6th, 12.00-13.00

Venue: Veras Gräsmatta

Keynote speaker: Shora Esmailian, Journalist and activitist

Panel: TBD

Disrupting banking as we know it - the Revolut story

Revolut started in July 2015 in UK with one punchy mission: Let's turn the banking industry on its head. Today it is the fastest growing FinTech unicorn in Europe with 4,5 million users & 80 000 registered business accounts. With a simple app offering banking services such as pre-paid debit card, currency exchange, cryptocurrency exchange and global peer-to-peer payments, the company have disrupted the banking industry as we know it. 

Hanna Johansson is working as the Community Manager and leading growth in Sweden. She is the first employee hitting the ground in Sweden and Hanna will share the Revolut story and insights of how to scale up a business fast from the perspective of a radically growing FinTech startup.

A Paradoxical approach to Innovation: How Metaboxical (Out of the Box) Thinking Can Expand the “Box” - Ken Mulligan

A Paradoxical approach to Innovation: How Metaboxical (Out of the Box) Thinking Can Expand the “Box” - Ken Mulligan

Nobel Prize winning physicist Richard Feynman observed that the “problem of creating something which is new, but which is consistent with everything which has been seen before, is one of extreme difficulty.” 

Using our imaginations to think of something that has never been seen before while “limited by the conditions that come from our knowledge of the way nature really is” requires a paradoxical approach to explore the impossible and improbable while simultaneously observing the laws of nature. To solve “a problem that we have never solved before, we must leave the door to the unknown ajar."  

In this talk, Ken explores how Metaboxical thinking can resolve this apparent paradox using a systematic approach to creativity and innovation which simultaneously uses the contents of the Box and expands the Box.  

Ken Mulligan is an adjunct professor of entrepreneurship and innovation at Arizona State University. He teaches Technology Entrepreneurship, Entrepreneurial Mindset and Strategic Enterprise Innovation in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering and New Venture Development in the WP Carey School of Business at ASU. He is a mentor and advisor to several startups focused on Regenerative Medicine, Cyber Security and Blockchain.

Modvion - why wood is natures carbon fiber & the building material of the future

Modvion - why wood is natures carbon fiber & the building material of the future

Why is wood the building material of the future and what needs to be done to get there? What impact does that have on wind power and what is it like to build 30 meter high prototypes of 150 meter high products?

Meet Otto Lundman, CEO and co-founder of Modvion and Erik Dölerud, CTO at Modvion who are on an entrepreneurial journey to reduce carbon emissions and at the same time build a sustainable venture.

Modvion designs demanding constructions in laminated wood - nature’s carbon fibre for large-scale construction. The technology enables radical emission reductions in construction by offering an cost effective alternative to emission intense materials such as steel and concrete. Modvion enables a six percent decrease in costs for wind power energy through module based wind turbine towers made by laminated wood. The module system makes for higher turbines and the material offers significant cost reduction and zero emissions.

Transitions Talks  - Divestment

Transitions Talks - Divestment

What if we moved savings and shifted investments from fossil energy assets?

Climate change calls for an immediate and immense transformation of the global energy system. But vested interests successfully resist change and maintain power and privilege – for example, fossil energy subsidies widely exceed investments in renewable energy, and many national economies are closely linked to fossil fuel interests. Sustainability transitions may accordingly require actions and policies that aim to dismantle existing industrial structures. In this seminar, we explore divestment from fossil energy assets as a tool for sustainable change and discuss how it can be used in different societal contexts.

Date and time: April 4th, 12.00-13.00

Venue: Veras Gräsmatta

Keynote speaker: Olivia Linander, Fossil Free Sweden

Panel: TBD

”Flera Vera”

”Flera Vera”

Sverige behöver fler kvinnor i teknikbranschen. Men på flera ingenjörsutbildningar och i många tekniska yrken är kvinnorna idag försvinnande få. Hur kan vi få dem att bli fler?

År 1917 tog Sveriges första kvinnliga ingenjör – Vera Sandberg – examen vid Chalmers. Sverige behöver fler som Vera! Industrin skriker nämligen efter tekniskt kompetent arbetskraft, och det blir allt mer etablerat att en jämnare könsbalans gynnar teknikutvecklingen. Så hur kan vi få fler kvinnor att känna sig behövda, bli inspirerade av vad de kan åstadkomma med ingenjörskonsten som verktyg och att trivas på tekniska arbetsplatser och utbildningar?

Arrangörer:

Chalmers i samarbete med

IVA, Sveriges Ingenjörer och Teknikföretagen

Transitions Talks - Rights of nature

What if we acknowledged that nature has a legal right not to be polluted, undermined and destroyed?

Human activities threaten biodiversity to the extent that we are currently witnessing the sixth mass extinction of species. It is clear that environmental regulation, based on anthropocentric arguments, fails in its efforts to protect the natural environment. In this seminar, we highlight a global movement that promotes the idea that nature has intrinsic value and discuss what role the rights of nature play in sustainability transitions.

Date and time: March 6th, 12.00-13.00

Venue: Veras Gräsmatta
