Panel discussion webinar | 15 December 2020 | 21:00 – 22:00 (CET) | Zoom |

Inaugural Webinar of MAGIC's Uncomfortable Knowledge Hub. 

Uncomfortable Knowledge is the metaphoric realisation of Orwell’s Memory Hole whereby destabilising, heterodox or embarrassing knowledge is suppressed by default or by design. The sustainability crisis is almost universally acknowledged today. We cannot afford to let relevant knowledge to be ignored because it does not fit political agendas, institutional regimes or established academic fields. How can we change this situation in order to fully use the knowledge resources at our disposal whatever their origins?

Panel discussants: Mario Giampietro, Roger Strand and Ângela Guimarães Pereira

Moderator: Silvio Funtowicz
