A Certificate created to engage on sustainability

It targets professionals and students of any degree programme (Bachelor, Master, or Ph.D.) and offers direct experience of engaging and co-creating with a very diverse social learning group. Experiential learning opportunities, including peer group projects on salient problems in Luxembourg, equip participants for making better informed and more reflexive judgments for effective action.

The programme is designed to be compatible with a full-time job or study programme. Students have a choice: They can enrol to obtain the Certificate as a second qualification in parallel to pursuing their main degree whilst at the University. Alternatively, they can take individual courses as optional courses that count towards their main degree.
