Join a real life online GRL lecture on Wednesday 18 November

Sometimes prospective students ask us if it is possible to attend a real life lecture of the GRL programme. And even though there are many downsides to the current pandemic, our switch to hybrid education (approximately 70% offline, 30% online education) does make it possible to now open up our online classrooms to prospective students. For the first time ever you are invited to digitally join a lecture of a current GRL course on Wednesday 18 November between 10.00 am and 1.00 pm (CET).

'Homes and Cars: citizens, technology and energy transition' lecture

This sneak peek week coincides with the second week of the course 'Homes and Cars: citizens, technology and energy transition', taught by dr. Anne Beaulieu.

In the lecture on Wednesday 18 November 10.45 am till 12.30 pm (CET), we will briefly review two main approaches in the study of energy (efficiency and practice theory) and we will then dive into the question of whether homes matter for the energy transition. To better understand this, we will contrast homes in the UK and homes in Thailand. This comparison will help clarify why concepts like energy consumption, energy requirement, and energy poverty are closely linked to the built environment, to urban design and to energy infrastructures. We will end with a discussion of how homes are important sites to consider when working toward a sustainable future.

Before and after the lecture there will be a preparatory and debrief session where you can ask your questions to a current student. Of course there will be also some short breaks. Will we see you in the online GRL classroom?
