The latest from the Alumni Network at Lund University

Friday greetings from the Alumni Office

Hello readers! Hope you are enjoying your Friday wherever you are in the world! Lund is windy and sunny. Cherry blossoms have started to bloom and the magnolia tree in Lundagård is budding. We are still working from home, waiting for a “new normal” office life. With that said, I’m happy to tell you that we at the Alumni Relations Office are keeping ourselves busy and are looking forward to presenting a variety of new digital events during the last week of April and in May.

Webinar: A sustainable working life (in Swedish)
3 May 16.30 CEST

Our working life has changed during the pandemic. We have worked remotely and in environments we do not usually work in. The job has been mixed with family life and many of us have not met our colleagues other than via digital meeting platforms. But how has it really been to work during the pandemic year? What work environment challenges have we faced? What does the research say?

In this panel discussion, the work environment researchers at Design Sciences at LTH present the latest research on the pandemic’s impact on working life. The researchers also look ahead and discuss opportunities that arose during the pandemic and which we take with us in our future sustainable working life.

Other events and celebrations at Lund University in April and May

“Siste April” and 1 May celebrations
30 April and 1 May

What would “Siste April” or “Valborg” (Walpurgis Night) be without a greeting from Lund University? Instead of gathering in front of the University main building, this year we are invited to sit down in front of the computer and join the digital celebration on 30 April and 1 May.
