Knowledge for the Future

For what purpose can society use social sciences? Come and get an idea of how we tackle social challenges.

About the event

In a series of talks on society moderated by Clement Kjersgaard, the University of Copenhagen will spotlight a number of the major social challenges we are facing.

Should we stop climate change by letting the UN control the weather by using artificial volcanoes? Are robots the teachers of the future? Could democracy as we know it do with a technological overhaul? And what sort of an adult will you be when, as a child, you’ve lived in a techno-democracy featuring artificial volcanoes and robot teachers?

Researchers from the Faculty of Social Sciences (SAMF) and social debaters will focus on the best way for social sciences to tackle the future and help solve the challenges society is facing.

Join us for an inspirational afternoon at the University of Copenhagen and meet Jørgen Elmeskov, National Statistician, Natasha Al-Hariri, debater, Henrik C. Wegener, Rector of the University of Copenhagen, Olaf Corry, Associate Professor, Department of Political Science, Stina Vrang Elias, CEO, Think Tank DEA to name but a few. 

The event is open to anyone interested, including non-members. You are welcome to bring a friend or colleague with you. Just remember to sign up here on the website.

The event will be conducted in Danish, but will be translated into English via telecoil. So bring along your English-speaking colleague or fellow-student to an afternoon packed with knowledge you can believe, grasp and use.
