Sustainability: the environment, gender and corporate/business responsibility

Home » Sustainability: the environment, gender and corporate/business responsibility

In this study abroad course we will be examining sustainability in Sweden and the Netherlands by focusing on the issues of the environment, gender, and social responsibility. Scandinavia in general and Sweden in particular as well as the Netherlands provide a powerful example of countries that have deliberately set out to create a society that supports gender and economic equality while also focusing on the environment and sustainable business practices.  Students will be immersed into society by a combination of academical and cultural activities. Academically students will be challenged during multiple lectures and sight visits to local and global companies, sustainable projects and government agencies. Students will learn about different models for sutainable living, governance and business.
Culturally the students will get to know about the daily live and history through multiple experiences: from using the extensive public transportation network, meeting with fellow students and employees of the visited companies to visiting historic landmarks and museums.
