About the course

Do you want to do a sustainability project, reach others and change the world? Then this is a course for you!

In this course, you plan and run a sustainability project in an international and interdisciplinary student group. The course gives you an introduction to project management. Throughout the course, you will work with practical and creative tools for planning, delivery, communication and evaluation of the project. In the course, you come up with a project idea that is shaped in lectures, workshops and seminars and is further developed through peer review and feedback sessions.

When the project proposal has been accepted, you run your project with the support of the course coordinators and CEMUS as a resource base. While there are some individual assignments, the main focus is on group work and assignments.


The course is offered at CEMUS, the Centre for Environment and Development Studies, in a student-led educational model where students actively contribute to shaping the courses and their content, creating a student-centred learning environment.
