How do we prepare our students for a future that seems uncertain and complex? What sustainability-related competences do our students need to develop?

The course is intended for you who teach in higher education and want to strengthen your ability to teach about sustainability.

According to the Higher Education Act, higher education institutions must promote sustainable development in their activities. In line with Agenda 2030, this goal needs to cover a number of areas: sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, a culture of peace and global citizenship, and the ecological environment.

The course aims to highlight how to implement sustainability in education. Through lectures, scientific articles, discussions and knowledge exchange with colleagues, you are given the opportunity to develop your ability to teach sustainability in a sustainable way.

Horizontal aims for Educate activities

The horizontal aims are to empower and enable teachers to solve problems in pedagogical environments, promote and participate in peer learning and co-creation, and expand their pedagogical repertoire to facilitate lifelong learning.

There are currently no extra materials for this course.

To you who have been accepted to Sustainability in Higher Education and received an admission letter from the Admissions Office at JU!
