About the course

This course focuses on the role of social equity in integrated health and sustainability transformations, particularly in contexts where stakeholder and learning processes are applied as policy instruments to address implementation dilemmas. It provides an actionable understanding of how actors, such as governments, companies, and communities can contest, deconstruct, and reconstruct new visions and agendas for the implementation of sustainability actions and health for all. This involves respectful but critical engagement with diverging interests and views in transformative dialogue, drawing on science and other forms of equally legitimate knowledge.
