Lund University has launched an online introductory course that aims to provide a greater understanding of the vocabulary and the ability to link sustainability perspectives to one’s own area of interest.

About the course: “Working for a sustainable future: concepts and approaches”

In this course, participants are introduced to key notions and concepts evolving in sustainability science that are relevant to all, independent to one’s work or field of interest. After having completed the course, participants will have a better understanding of the vocabulary used today and should demonstrate the ability to reflect critically to integrate different perspectives of environmental, social, and economic sustainability to their specific area of interest or research.

Throughout the course, links are made to the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, as our current global road map towards sustainability, and how new approaches and solutions are emerging to describe, understand and address key sustainability challenges. Put simply, the overall aim is to give participants the knowledge and confidence needed to present and discuss ideas with others by applying methods, concepts and the vocabulary exemplified in the course with a more holistic view on the sustainability agenda across topics and disciplines.
