Event description
The 7th edition of the biggest event in Europe on applied anthropology.

About this Event

We are proud to announce the 7th edition of the annual event

WHY THE WORLD NEEDS ANTHROPOLOGISTS

a symposium that explores the different applications of anthropology beyond traditional academia.

This year’s edition - SUSTAINING CITIES - focuses on cities and sustainability. We will explore the idea of "green city" and ask how infrastructures in urban spaces play with or against our aspirations of smartness and greenness.

We will bring together designers, urbanists, planners, architects and applied anthropologists to re-frame the future of humanity around the world.

The event will be held in Oslo, Norway, 25-27 October 2019.
