The Lab aims for students to gain consultancy, research, or professional skills in environmental sustainability. Students will work with government, industry or civil society organizations that promote environmental sustainability due to an increased acknowledgement of the intrinsic value of nature and its key role for human wellbeing and global stability. Together with these organizations, students will address real-life environmental sustainability challenges and opportunities in real work contexts. They will take holistic and integrative approaches and use environmental sustainability-inclusive methods and tools, contributing to solutions, creating synergic relationships, and positively impacting society.
