The International Science Festival Gothenburg, April 18-20

With hundreds of activities and about 70,000 visits The International Science Festival in Gothenburg is one of Europe’s leading popular science events and the only one of its kind in Sweden.

The theme for 2018 – “What are we” – investigated collective actions and how big networks interact. Here is a selection of CeCAR seminars.

Collective Action and Social Change

Why do people engage in collective action, how is it achieved and how can this generate social change? This seminar discusses in-group versus out-group processes, norms and identity and their role in changing human behavior in issues such as health and the environment.


Seminar held by Professor Winnifred Louis, School of Psychology, University of Queensland.

I am the Ocean

All aspects of our life are deeply rooted in the ocean. For example, it produces 50 percent of the oxygen we breathe and 15 percent of the food we eat. So no matter where we live we are the Ocean. In this activity we will ask you to be the ocean and propose solutions to help the Ocean and yourself.

Seminar held by Sam Dupont, Researcher, Department of Biological & Environmental Sciences/Centre for Collective Action Research, University of Gothenburg.

Ocean acidification and plastics

This seminar discusses the global challenges of acidification and plastics in the oceans. These are environmental problems demanding a large number of people to cooperate in order to evade risks and crises. What actions are possible from states, individuals and businesses?

Seminar held by Bethanie Carney Almroth, Senior Lecturer, ecotoxicology and zoophysiology/Centre for Collective Action Research, University of Gothenburg and Sam Dupont, Researcher, Department of Biological & Environmental Sciences/Centre for Collective Action Research, University of Gothenburg.

Sustainable eating for the collective

This talk discusses questions concerning our food consumption. What are the consequences of unsustainable food consumption? Who has the right to decide the individual's food choices? And when and how does the individual change its eating habits for the benefit of the collective?

Seminar held by Fredrik Hedenus, Senior Researcher/Head of Division, Department of Space, Earth and Environment, Physical Resource Theory, Chalmers University of Technology; Christina Gravert, Researcher, Department of Economics, University of Gothenburg and Karl de Fine Licht, Researcher/Teacher, RISE/Chalmers University of Technology.
