Course aim

The aim of the course is to understand how the EU works and how it can meet the challenges it faces and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals against the backdrop of a world shaped by ever more rapid technological changes.
The course will represent an innovative interfaculty approach to learning about the EU and how the EU can be used to meet the challenges facing both Europe and the rest of the world today and in the future. The course aims to break down disciplinary silos and to present a structure facilitating cooperation between students from the TEK, SAMF, and HUM faculties, by encouraging them to take an interdisciplinary approach to critical global sustainable development problems.
