Communicating and improving students’ interdisciplinary engagement with social (in)justice
Addressing pressing societal problems and, specifically, contributing to a more just society are EUR priorities. Thus, various faculties offer courses dealing with social inequality. A starting point of this CLI project is that students in those courses can learn much from each other’s (and the different lecturers’) work and perspectives. By setting up a shared website about social (in)equalities in Rotterdam, the project will engage students in such a multidisciplinary discussion about real life local problems and efforts to fight them. Since the website is open to the broad community, it will also enhance students’ awareness of the potential impact of their work and of the challenges associated with communicating about this topic in effective and socially responsible ways.
