This teaching method increases learning significantly compared to traditional course learning.

    Introduction to Sustainability with certification: one-day course

    Provider: Plan A ApS – Trainer: Lasse Borris Sørensen and Ann Rosenberg.

    UN Sustainability Goals

    The UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals are designed to help nations act more sustainably. To also ensure companies’ contribution to a more sustainable world, the UN has established the SDG Ambition. As the projects most often take place under the aegis of companies, we use SDG Ambition as a framework for sustainability.

    Historically speaking, projects have typically related primarily to economy. But now the UN broadens the concept of value to also include the environment, social relationships, economy, partnerships, and peace.

    The sustainable focus of the course provides an understanding that it is no longer enough for the project to simply centre on sustainability up till the day of delivery, as a large part of the impact comes from the products created by the individual project. This is why a much longer time frame is needed.

    The broader understanding of value and the longer time frame entails a substantial increase in the number of sources able to influence the project. Therefore, it is crucial that the project approach is created for quick and efficient adaptation.
