The concept of sustainability helps to identify the possible ways in which we can live on our planet – the only one we have – in harmony with nature and other people and communities. This MOOC focuses on promoting sustainability and responding to the most urgent issues in the field of sustainability and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by using examples and contexts from real life. Allied to this, the concept of Ecological Footprint (EF) is introduced in this MOOC to create consciousness and guide individuals through the knowledge-awareness-action journey toward sustainability.
Given the important role of Higher Education Institutions (HEI) in the transformative shift of values and actions toward sustainability, this MOOC also presents the main aspects of sustainability in HEI to incorporate the sustainability values in all HEI missions and practices. The course is addressed to everyone that wants to know more about the topic for professional, academic, or personal reasons.
