The Futures Lab is a forum for interdisciplinary explorations of future research questions and societal challenges.

Research with future perspectives

The Futures Lab was initiated in 2019 by the two future platforms SLU Urban Futures and SLU Future Food. The lab has its thematic focus where the subject areas of these two platforms meet: sustainable urban development and a sustainable food system. In 2020, an interdisciplinary research group participated in a project where the participants immersed themselves in future studies and developed their own projects with a future perspective. In 2022, the Future Lab will run a webinar series, where everyone who is interested in future studies is welcome.

Urban Take-Aways: The Futures Lab

Urban Take-Aways is a film series where we meet researchers and practitioners from various disciplines and fields, who share insights from inspiring projects related to urban sustainability. In this film, we meet Josefin Wangel and the participants on the Futures Lab at SLU 2020.
