7th Social LCA conference: Impacts, Interests, Interactions

Start:Monday, 15 June, 2020, 00:00

The 7th Social LCA conference will take place in Gothenburg, 15-17 June 2020.

The conference theme Social LCA – Impacts, Interests, Interactions:

-Impacts: The discussion about impacts is central to the field of social LCA. The social impacts associated with products are diverse and difficult to capture well. From another angle, what are the impacts of using social LCA?

-Interests: What interests are found inte the product chain? What interests do social-LCA express? How can social and ecological interests be balanced?

-Interactions: Between context, actors, tools, products and impacts – interactions are everywhere! How can social-LCA help in assisting problem-identification and intervention?

Update: Due to governmental and university guidelines regarding COVID-19 (Corona-virus) we have decided to proceed with SLCA2020 as planned, but is some other form. Owing to all uncertainties, we now plan for an online event, with the option to also hold a physical event for those who may travel and if the situation clears. A decision to hold such a physical event will be taken later. Our decision have consequences for many things, among else, the registration fees and the format for presentations.

We are fully aware that an online event will not provide the same opportunities as a physical event, but we will do our utmost to find engaging ways so that people will get useful feedback on their presentations, take part in interesting conversations, and experience a valuable and memorable event. If we get this to work well, we will have made some important learnings on more climate-neutral conferencing for the future!
