The purpose of the English online course Leadership for sustainable change is to train students to be change managers who know how to tackle global sustainability challenges and make complex societies more sustainable.
“The course will discuss climate change mitigation and the sustainable use of natural resources. The circular economy provides solutions to both of these challenges, and students will learn to apply them in organisations”, says Laura Riuttanen from the Institute for Atmospheric and Earth System Research (INAR). She´s responsible for the course at the University of Helsinki.
The five-credit course ‘Leadership for sustainable change’ will feature video lectures, assignments as well as a project work in which the student plans a concrete change project.
“This is a kind of course I would have liked to take during my studies. It’s not enough that we only study reasons for global problems, we also need to try to solve them,” she says.
The University of Helsinki and the University of Tampere launched the joint online course with The Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra last autumn for the first time.
