Using real-life examples and experiences, the EUSTEPs MOOC helps participants wrestle with global sustainability challenges and ways to address them through both self-paced and synchronous sessions.

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.

Outcomes

By the end of this MOOC, you will be able to recognize why sustainability is an important issue, and how the SDGs and sustainability link with the EF concept. Also, you will learn how your daily actions impact the surroundings and how you should promote a lifestyle compatible with a single planet and sustainability concept.

The MOOC allows you to acquire knowledge on the concept of sustainability and the Ecological Footprint, by using examples and contexts from real life. It also helps you to understand what approaches can you make to address the global sustainability issue.

Partnership: Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Universidade Aberta, University of Aveiro, University of Siena, and Global Footprint Network.
