November 10th is the “International Science Center and Science Museum Day” and the theme this year is the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted one year ago. The science center Universeum in Gothenburg, which has a particular focus on rainforest, will acknowledge the day by offering a discussion about SDG no.15, tropical deforestation and the threats to biodiversity in the rainforest.

Martin Persson, Focali member and assistant professor at physical resource theory at Chalmers, will answer questions on this theme and discuss what we can do to stop tropical deforestation and how SDG 15 ("life on land") might contribute to halt tropical deforestation.

Coffee and refreshments (without palm oil) will be served.
