Sea and Society talks is a lunch seminar series focusing on the UN sutainable development goals. The seminars link goal 14 "Life below water" with the other 16 goals. The idea is to give a short introduction to the topic and invite to discuss how researchers at the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers can help in achieving a sustainable society.
