Programme

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests. More information on SDGS can be found at http://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/


On September 25, 2015, countries adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years. For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society and people.
Cities are hubs for ideas, commerce, culture, science, productivity, social development and much more. At their best, cities have enabled people to advance socially and economically.
However, many challenges exist to maintaining cities in a way that continues to create jobs and prosperity while not straining land and resources. Common urban challenges include congestion, lack of funds to provide basic services, a shortage of adequate housing and declining infrastructure. The challenges cities face can be overcome in ways that allow them to continue to thrive and grow, while improving resource use and reducing pollution and poverty. The future we want includes cities of opportunities for all, with access to basic services, energy, housing, transportation and more.

Main topics for this class:
¥ FOOD SUSTAINAIBILITY
¥ FOOD SUSTAINABILITY AND SDGS
¥ SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
¥ JOBS AND CREATIVE SKILLS FOR SUSTAINABILITY

Type of delivery of the course

Learning Goals • To examine some of the major problems of sustainable development (including issues related to food, water, and energy resources, climate change, and protection of ecosystem services) • To use design thinking methods to make sustainability compelling, impactful and realizable. • To analyze contextual, functional and human-centered design thinking techniques to promote sustainable design of products, services and environments by considering social space, form, environment, energy, economics, and health. • To improve human well-being while preserving Earth’s life support systems (air, water, climate, ecosystems) • To explore how science and technology can contribute to the solution of some of the most critical problems of the 21st Century • To integrate solutions that draw on different disciplines • To give a sense to the well-being of people as well as to the environment Critical thinking outcomes: • Develop meaningful questions to address sustainability related issues. • Gather and evaluate relevant sources of information • Reach informed conclusions and solutions (make connections between history, economy and people’s food social practices). • Analytically consider the viewpoints of self and others (people from different food cultures). Students will learn and use basic methodologies and tools of design thinking (applied to Sustainability Issues

Type of evaluation
