Why The World Needs Anthropologists is a showdown of the most thought-provoking issues, bursting out of the intersections of academia and aligned industries. Attracting 2,200 participants from varying disciplines and sectors, the flagship symposium of EASA’s Applied Anthropology Network has been providing a platform for discussion and action since 2013.
2020’s Programme Structure will be introduced soon. Apart from surprising innovations we have up our sleeves, you can expect a “classic” WWNA symposium.
WWNA’s model usually features immersive plenary talks and moderated panel discussions in the iconic local venues. Like-minded professionals, students and graduates mingle at the Hotspot exhibition.
The next day, WWNA sponsors, partners and participants run hands-on, themed workshops and smaller case-study-oriented sessions such as Perspectives.
The third day is dedicated to the site-specific activities and the annual European Applied Anthropology Network Meeting. When all is said and done, we will enjoy social events in the heart of Central Europe.
If all of this sounds appealing, then “Mobilizing the Planet” is right up your street!
