Multidisciplinary digital learning in sustainability challenges – flexible study paths to the working life

Climate change and other sustainability challenges are challenging the higher education. The problems are interdisciplinary and wide. As a humankind, we are in a great hurry and the newest knowledge needs to be transferred between research, education and working-life. Digitalization offers new and fast ways to transfer knowledge between academia, schools, and public as well as private sector of the society.

This project has got funding from the Ministry of Education and Culture. Until the end of 2020, we offer open workshops for university teachers to meet and codesign future sustainability education. We aim at bringing together professionals of different fields of academia, as well as public and private sector, and schools.

We also collect available learning materials and best practices of sustainability education to this web site and under the title Climate University.

Welcome to explore, and share your experience and views on how climate change and sustainability should be taught in higher education in Finland!
