The Sustainable Development Goals are the most important agenda for the coming 12 years. There is not one discipline that falls outside of the opportunity to shape a better world. Because there is not one profession that exists outside of our world.

Yet educators are challenged to connect information with values and actions, which cannot be achieved until we develop a real paradigm shift.

How can educators of the new generation be prepared to develop this new mindset with their students?

At the end of the seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the core elements of the sustainability mindset.
  • Understand the values that anchor us in un-sustainability.
  • Identify the leverage points of the old and the new worldview.
  • Identify ways to incorporate the mindset into their courses.
  • Appreciate the opportunity to work with and learn from a diverse group of peers who share their interest and passion for developing a new generation of professionals.

The seminar consists of the following sessions:

  • What is the Sustainability Mindset? (SM)
  • Research findings
  • Elements and Model of the SM Values and Anchors of U
  • Leverage points – Sustainable Development Goals
  • Pedagogical instruments and approaches for a SM in Action
