Humanity is facing major global challenges and contradictions: increasing prosperity, but also growing inequality; overconsumption on the one hand, malnutrition on the other; increasing economic growth and extreme environmental degradation. We often lack a holistic view. Where can we start to solve these problems?

This course explains the most important global challenges and the possible solutions that already exist today:

With a focus on food, urban development and social justice, you will get an overall view of our system. In the area of nutrition, you will learn about the entire food value chain and how to build sustainable food value chains through studies and examples.

Cities are centres of human life. Experts from the fields of energy, architecture, natural resources and economics will show you how cities can be developed in a socially responsible, green and low-emission way.

How does inequality arise, and how can we do something about it? Experienced social scientists and linguists will explain how inequality arises and which principles can promote social justice.

During the course, you will receive various inputs on how to deal with your health sustainably.

The Vision 2030 course will enable you to take a more holistic view of your work and life and thus contribute to sustainable development.
