Short-course

Curious to learn more about sustainability from an interdisciplinary perspective? The Sustainability Bootcamp combines state of the art lectures from both academic and operational experts, getting inspired for innovation and meeting peers in an open atmosphere at our green campus in Brussels.

 

Current sustainability initiatives at VUB clearly show a significant, but diversified expertise in sustainability in the broadest sense present at the university. The Bootcamp will bundle this expertise into one condensed lecture series during the second week of the Spring holidays. The multidisciplinarity of the experts and renowned lecturers will add an extra dimension to the Bootcamp, necessary to understand the broader picture of this subject. Testimonials by amongst others Colruyt Group and OVAM.

Because of the interdisciplinarity, the Sustainability Bootcamp appeals to a wide and divers range of potential participants with different backgrounds. One of the main targeted groups will be any company manager or employee who is confronted with sustainability issues in daily work and who is in need of more knowledge with regards to the subject. Additionally, dedicated CSR or sustainability managers and officers looking to increase their knowledge are also targetted. Finally, (recent) graduates and current (PhD) students with a specific interest in sustainability are welcome as well.

The Sustainability Bootcamp consists out of one introductory session, followed by four thematic modules spread out over the four days and an active closing activity.

  • SUSTAINABILITY CHALLENGE In this first module, we introduce you to the current sustainability challenge of human kind
  • STATE-OF-THE-ART In the second module, we give you a view on where we stand today, via topics as energy, mobility & logistics and buildings.
  • AUTHORITIES AND COMPANIES In this third module we look into the responsabilities on a more central level: politics and mitigations strategies; strategy and CSR; production and the circular economy model.
  • INDIVIDUAL LEVEL In this last module we give you an insight on the different initiatives one can take as an individual: sustainable food, how to work in an sustainable way, what can we really do ourselves
