Course: Green Growth

14 June 2017

Sustainability is a complicated theme that is widely discussed and written about. But how can you actually contribute to sustainability? During this course you will learn about the small and big steps you can take yourself. You will discover that sustainability is not only about nature, but also about people, animals and ethics. Every lecture has a different theme. You will discover different processes related to food, waste and circular economy. In addition, you will get an understanding of the motivation behind sustainable choices. What, for example, is the influence of your surroundings and genes on the decisions that you make? What can you do to change your behaviour and motivate others?

The focus of the course is on interaction, discussion and critical thinking. In the different group assignments during the course you will get the chance to put the lessons you have learned into practice. In addition, two lectures will be about how sustainability can be implemented in organizations. After completing this course you will be full of inspiration and knowledge about sustainability and how to contribute to a sustainable society!
