You brave (un)sustainable world

Welcome to a 12 minute mini-lecture given by Sarah Ljungquist,
researcher and senior lecturer in gender studies at Gävle University.


Sarah Ljungquist embraces Aidous Huxley’s dystopian portrayal of the future, Brave New World (1932) about a world where consumerism has become mammon, she uses it as an example to shed light upon the social perspective of sustainable development.

  • Questions about why such a world is neither socially nor ecologically sustainable.
  • Why the biased focus on the ecological sustainability?
  • The significance of a balance between social and ecological sustainability.


Date: Wednesday 25th March

Time: 12.12 pm

Place: University Library, Kungsbäcksvägen 47.

Arranger: Gävle University Library. The lecture will be filmed.
