The University of Pretoria’s Future Africa (FA) invites you to a Transdisciplinary (TD) Dialogue titled "Why Global Transdisciplinarity: What Should We Be Talking About?" with Professor Roderick Lawrence from the University of Geneva, Switzerland.

Transdisciplinarity goes beyond the co-production of knowledge and problem-solving. It is an attitude and a way of being, thinking, and acting in relation to others and the world. This dialogue will address fundamental concerns that need attention if transdisciplinary projects are to be upscaled for greater societal impact. Topics to be explored include: The importance of creative and critical thinking to better understand and respond to societal challenges, the
added value of transdisciplinary inquiry, rethinking the purpose of science, TD achievements: Innovative beacons for change, amongst others.
