Mundus maris- Sciences and Arts for Sustainability asbl has stepped up participation in the 2012 agenda of Campus Plein Sud at the Free University of Brussels (ULB). This time, we organised or participated in four successful events.

The theme in the tenth year of existence focuses again on water and sustainability issues, this time with particular attention to climate change. From its beginning, the ambition of Campus Plein Sud was to inform the campus community of the many facets of development "in the global South" so as to replace the caricature of misery or exoticism often painted by the media with more nuanced understanding. The climate change and global trade and sustainability perspectives forcefully illustrates global interdependencies. The calendar of our contributions comprises:

  • 29 February 2012 - NGO Forum on Avenue Paul Heger, Campus Solbosch, from 10 to 16h30
  • 2-3 March 2012 - "Learning, teaching and practising - together - sustainable development", international workshop, 44 ave. Jeanne, Salle Janne, Friday from 9 to 17h45 and Saturday from 9 to 14h
  • 5 March 2012 - Cine-debate "Kayar - l'enfance prise aux filets" - Forum H, Campus de la Pleine in the course of Prof. Lancelot, with Aliou Sall and Cornelia E Nauen as discussants; starts at 10h. Click here to see the poster announcement.
