The course is designed for both bachelor and master students focused on the development of holistic understanding of sustainability.
The vision for this course is to go beyond just imparting knowledge to students - to empower them with a comprehensive understanding of sustainability issues, analytical tools, and critical thinking skills needed to become responsible sustainability leaders. Our hands-on approach through workshops, discussions, and team projects will give students real-world experience in designing sustainable business models, and the reflective practice they develop will be invaluable in navigating the complexities of sustainability issues. The ultimate goal is to inspire and prepare the next generation of sustainability leaders who can make a meaningful impact on our planet and society by addressing the most pressing sustainability challenges of our time. We believe that this can be achieved through a deep understanding of sustainability issues while avoiding the simplification and greenwashing of the matter.
