Innovative Solutions for SUstainability in Education (ISSUE)

Since November 2018, CBS is working on a transnational research project under the ERASMUS+ KA2 Strategic Partnership project (2018-1-HU01-KA202-047730) together with partners from Slovenia, Hungary, Spain, Finland and the UK.

The ISSUE project partnership works on developing various education tools based on principles and goals of sustainable development and adapting them for higher educational institutions. Higher education institutions should ensure that their governance, faculty, staff and students not only understand sustainability, but also have the capacity to act sustainably and promote sustainable practices. To reach this goal, ISSUE is developing innovative content and tools with modern pedagogical approaches. Next to educational tools, the project also incorporates fields of sustainable reporting practices and green office design.

In the development of an innovative summer school program, CBS will be working closely together with its project partners as well as incorporate students in the development process of the program. The summer school was planned for the summer of 2020 but has been cancelled due to Coronavirus restrictions.
