About the course:

Do you want do a sustainability project, reach others and change the world? Then this is a course for you!

You carry out a local project in international and interdisciplinary groups that in one way or another aims to contribute to sustainable development. You come up with a project idea that is shaped in lectures, workshops and seminars and is further developed through peer review and feedback sessions. When the project proposal has been accepted, you run your project with the support of the course coordinators and CEMUS as a resource base. The project is ultimately presented in a project report, and in an outreach context at CEMUS Sustainability Festival at the end of each semester. The project should combine theoretical and practical skills with method knowledge - all of which are practiced throughout the course. Focus is put on critically discussing and presenting the project results in both writing and speech. While there are some individual assignments, the main focus is on group work and assignments.
