It’s time for the official launch of the Una Europa Micro-Credential in Sustainability, a flexible online study programme that draws on the collective expertise of Una Europa universities to equip learners with a crucial understanding of sustainable development and the competence to solve sustainability problems.

This has been a long time in the making and is based on a close collaboration between the Helsingin yliopisto/ Helsingfors universitet, Alma Mater Studiorum Università di Bologna and Uniwersytet Jagielloński w Krakowie in addition to many other collaborators inside and outside of Una Europa.

The result is an interdisciplinary, international, and unique educational offering in its field. With the Micro-credential in sustainability, you will get to learn about sustainability but through several different lenses. It is a collection of five MOOCs, earning you a total of 10 credits and with topics from climate change and biodiversity to the arts and political economy. This offering ensures a broad and multifaceted learning experience on the topic of sustainability and with international perspectives and examples.

The launch event will be livestreamed from Helsinki, Krakow and Bologna and can be followed online via our YouTube channel. There will also be opportunities to engage in the chat and to add your own visions for a more sustainable futures with an online collaboration tool. Sign up to receive all the updates and information before the event.

There will be artistic interventions, introductions to the courses from our academic leads, and inspiring insights from practitioners in the field. Each course will be introduced by a leading academic from the field and a practitioner, sharing the real-life experiences of working with that subject.

In our physical locations of Helsinki, Krakow and Bologna we will have an interactive workshop from 14:15-15:00CET where we ask you to share your visions and what you imagine as a more sustainable future for us all. Online participants can still share their ideas.

The Una Europa Micro-credential in Sustainability was initiated under the 1Europe Project.
