Workshop for young lecturers


We are transforming our university teaching towards sustainability

Join us for a workshop organized for young lecturers. The goal of the workshop is to help young lecturers expand their knowledge on the transformative potential of universities and how this change can be initiated internally within universities. Organized by various stakeholders active in academia, the workshop will provide essential basic knowledge, teaching strategies, and support offers to incorporate sustainable development into teaching.

As a young lecturer, you can either bring your own project idea/module you would like to work on or develop new ideas on-site. 

We are looking forward to creating a sustainable university environment together with you!
