The word ‘Sustainability’ is frequently used today. There are often different views on what it means, and there is even more debate on who is responsible for this task of sustainability. In this programme participants will work in multidisciplinary teams to address a task that requires a sustainable solution. Many environmental issues that are the topic for sustainability tasks can be addressed by engineering and technology, and this is an opportunity to experience what can be done and how we can collectively work towards a cleaner environment with well-managed resources.
