Sustainability Competencies

Sustainability Competencies

Green Office support the development of competencies we need to apply sustainability in our professional and personal lifes. We believe in education that goes beyond the transfer of knowledge and supports students’ skills, attitudes and abilities to act upon sustainable challenges. Competencies for sustainability include systems thinking, inter- and intra-personal competencies, critical thinking, futures thinking, collaboration and action competency.

Projects we are working on:
Lobbying for and designing a module for teachers to get inspired to integrate sustainability into their courses by developing their own sustainability competencies.

Projects about developing sustainability competencies we support:
An online course developed by WUR students called ‘becoming an agent of sustainable change‘ in which you learn to develop your own sustainability project. The course can be followed for free on the Edx platform.
