The course offers a better understanding of the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) from a broader perspective. Over the course of three days, you will get a closer look at different perspectives that may affect your own motivation as well as your professional environment. It is up to you to decide how far you want to delve. The specially developed SDG Explorer (as a mobile application), designed to bridge the gap between knowledge transfer and structural support, gives you the opportunity to develop your own sustainable project, share it with others and use it according to your environment (professional and/or personal).
