Participants must register their interest by 30 June to take part in the user testing

Are you interested in learning more about sustainability? Would you like to be part of shaping the initiatives of Una Europa? Do you want to be part of creating the University of the Future? Then apply to be a test user for the Una Europa Micro-credential in Sustainability!

Please note: The registration window for user testing has been extended to 30 June for three modules - Sustainable.now, Climate.now and Biodiversity.now. Register to test any of these three modules today!

Una Europa is creating a new Micro-credential in Sustainability. This will be a certificate consisting of five MOOCs provided by three different Una Europa universities. This micro-credential gives people across the world the opportunity to virtually study in these three different universities, gaining insights and knowledge from three different perspectives.

The work on the Micro-credential in Sustainability is quickly progressing, and we want to hear your feedback and suggestions before launching the Micro-credential this autumn!

Therefore, we invite everyone to sign up as a test user. Participants will test content from one module of the Micro-credential, with the opportunity to choose their preferred topic. Una Europa students, staff, academics and also people in professional life are invited to sign up as test users now!

What topics will be covered?

Test users will be invited to review one (or more!) of the five courses that comprise the Una Europa Micro-credential in Sustainability:

  • Introduction to sustainability
  • Political economy of sustainability
  • Biodiversity.now - multidisciplinary understanding on biodiversity, biodiversity crisis and protecting biodiversity
  • Climate.now - basics of climate change for everyone
  • Sustainability and the arts - between collective actions and cultural industries

What does the user testing entail?

By signing up you will receive the link to the test module of your choice and a feedback form to fill in during and after you test the module. If you have time, you are welcome to test and give feedback on several modules.

Apply for the user testing now

The Una Europa Micro-credential in Sustainability is developed as part of the 1Europe project.
