Researchers, lecturers, and students on Campus Gotland are invited to a series of workshops and discussions on how education can be organized differently to address sustainability challenges.

These workshops aim to build knowledge about how existing courses and programs may be developed to meet present and future sustainability challenges, map out existing competencies and capacities on campus, and also brainstorm what new courses and teaching methods may potentially contribute to Campus Gotland education. During a total of six sessions over four days, we will explore a number of approaches to Education for Sustainable Development and discuss how these might be developed in the Gotland context.
