On the 5th of March 2020, local group Utrecht hosted a stand at the Pathways to Sustainability conference. The theme of our stand was: “Being an academic in times of a planetary emergency”.
We brought posterboards on which we explored the various aspects of our responsibilities, both as individuals and as institutions. Framed as a scientific experiment (which it was clearly not), these posters did foster lively discussion amongst people passing by.
Find the results of the ‘experiment’ below. Clearly, these are not representative in any way, given the specific audience that our stand attracted and the flawed design of the experiment (e.g., one could see the input of previous participants). Still, some interesting and perhaps surprising results came out.
We thank the conference organizers for having us, and everyone that participated for your interest and input.
