Ubi Bene, Ibi Patria: Learning from Research & Practice on Mobility & Sustainability
Human mobility encompasses a range of migrants from globally skilled workers to internally displaced refugees. We become interested in how the subject of migration intersects with crucial issues such as shelter and habitats, economics and labour, climate change and public health, and sustainable development.
This upcoming event has invited experts who have hands-on experience and valuable insights derived from their practical work and research on topics such as internally displaced persons (IDPs), transnational talents and labour, and the intricate connections between climate, migration, and health. The post-talk discussion aims to foster a trans-regional/disciplinary approach to these matters, within and beyond academia, to enhance our understanding of human mobility, associated challenges and the potential for positive change for sustainability.
