Swissnex in Brazil will host a networking event with Researcher Cathérine Hartmann from ZHAW on November 23rd at Swissnex in Brazil in Rio de Janeiro. She will present her research focus on new insights and approaches from academia and business regarding behavior change for sustainable development.
As an environmental and sustainability psychologist, Cathérine Hartmann is interested in changing individuals’ daily behavior for a sustainable and just future. Considering that the sustainability challenges faced in Switzerland are (still) technologically and behaviorally solvable, She wants to broaden her viewpoint and learn how topics like tackling climate change are addressed in different cultural circumstances. Therefore, she will focus on the Brazilian setting in academia and business, wherever the human-related impacts for a transformation towards a more sustainable future emerge in mobility, food, energy, waste & recycling, etc.
It will be an excellent opportunity to meet new people, exchange knowledge, and strengthen the bridge between Brazil and Switzerland, connecting interested parties to strengthen the links between scientific knowledge and its applications.
Join us in Rio de Janeiro for Coffee and croissants while networking with other professionals in the field and Cathérine Hartmann.
