U®Reflections 2015 - Changing Institutions for Sustainable Development

The session will reflect on all these changes under the working title: "Changing Institutions for Sustainable Development". U®Reflections 2015 was preceded by U®conversations in 2014 and U®talks in 2013, complementing education at VHL with sector specific open exchanges between students and staff, often inspired by external speakers.
For whom The session is open to all students and teachers of VHL but is specifically targeting 1st and 2nd year students International Development Management as well as Masters students. Also interested third parties may join the conversations.
