Crisis of the climate and the environment sweeps the world today. The present urgency has a long history of modern development, excessive extraction, and loss of ecologies and livelihoods. There are also concerted efforts for turning the wheels. The course combines a longterm view on human-nature relations with key events of conflict, conservation, and action.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
