7th Social LCA conference:
Impacts, Interests, Interactions


The 7th international conference on Social Life Cycle Assessment will be held in Gothenburg, Sweden, June 14-17, 2020. It takes place the week before mid-summer, a time when many consider Sweden to be at its finest with long days and white nights. The conference is co-arranged by KTH- Royal Institute of Technology and Chalmers University of Technology , and will be held on the campus of Chalmers, hosted in collaboration with the Swedish Life Cycle Center.

Call for abstracts

Theme: Impacts – Interests – Interactions

With the theme Impacts – Interests – Interactions we want to acknowledge that social life cycle studies have diverse methods, are conducted in different contexts and with different effects. While there are social impacts related to decisions, also the social organisation of the life cycle matters for sustainability change. The conference offers an occasion to examine SLCA from methodological as well as social and practical perspectives.
