For the second time since 2007, Urs Zollinger was co-responsible for the realization of a two-day seminar on sustainability and globalization as part of Certificate of Advanced Studies on Sustainable Development at the University of Berne. Using the 2008 food crisis as a case study, the seminar demonstrated the complex relationships between globalisation and sustainable development, and the way the international community responds to global challenges. Urs Zollinger was also responsible for evaluating the theses submitted by the participants. The certificate course will be repeated in 2011. Contact: Urs Zollinger
