Sustainable Development Lab

Project Details


Sustainable Development Lab is an interdisciplinary course for multiple master studies at Aalborg University in Copenhagen. The Sustainable Development Lab aims to prepare students for real-life problem cases. It is an offer for master's students in 3rd semester, instead of doing a “normal” internship in business. The course offers lectures about sustainability, ethics, design thinking, boundary-spanning, future thinking, strategic thinking, etc. Besides, the students will collaborate with an organisation on an actual problem case in close cooperation. By collaborating with organisations on actual problem cases and gaining knowledge from several study fields, the students get unique competencies for their future work.
