Project introduction and background information
The need to be more sustainable is more present than ever. This also means that we need to educate our students on sustainability.
Objective and expected outcomes
The Eindhoven University of Technology has started a three-year project to enhance curricular education on sustainability and global challenges for all its students. The overarching goal is to provide students with theoretical knowledge, practical skills and critical thinking regarding systemic change and sustainability. They should be able to integrate these aspects in their studies, projects and later career.
Results and learnings
The first phase (= first year) of the project will be focused on the definition of an overall education framework to support the necessary curricular changes (based on existing frameworks in literature and benchmarking with other organizations), build consensus on this framework with multiple relevant stakeholders across the university and design a strategy aimed to reach the goals of this project.
