Edinburgh Futures Conversations
The University of Edinburgh and the Edinburgh Futures Institute (EFI) present a series of events to promote global understanding and cooperation, and to contribute action-oriented thinking to the public debate about the world’s response to Covid-19.
The global pandemic demonstrates the need for international cooperation and mutual understanding to solve the many threats that our planet is facing today. Universities have a vital role to play in bringing diverse and competing interests to the table, as well as providing research evidence. The Edinburgh Futures Institute is proud to host these conversations on behalf of the University of Edinburgh.
EFI has also created a student programme alongside the Conversations – bringing students from across the University together to examine the role that they and their institution have in nurturing a multi-sector approach to collective action. Students are leading the call to take responsibility for catalysing changes, for being part of the great reset that needs to frame new social contracts that care about the human family, and the global commons.
