What is Accelerating a Sustainability Transition?

"Accelerating Sustainability" is designed to inspire and enable participants to collaborate and lead effective change towards sustainability. The course supports sustainability innovators and broadens their understanding of global risks, international standards, and regulations. By studying value chains and ecosystems, we explore how to align with the 1.5-degree target and overall Agenda 2030 goals.

The course is created to empower and prepare anyone who is willing to coach their organization or another organization into accelerating their sustainability transition. Participants are invited to explore their own resilience and role by unfolding the Inner Development Goals and exploring their personal values and impact.

This journey is supported by regular dialogues, coaching, and mentoring sessions to help participants reflect, engage, and work on their identified goals.


Connection to Research and Practice

This course introduces the global context for sustainability, the SDGs, and the IDGs to facilitate sustainable innovation. It also addresses the social dynamics of transformation, innovation within the organization and infrastructure/environment to create a roadmap for sustainability transformation based on science-based targets (SBTI). The course is based on global calls for decarbonization and the creation of a regenerative economy.


Type of instruction

This course will be delivered online with a mix of recorded short lectures, seminars and workshops.
