The power of Change Leaders
Higher education institutions hold a critical role in fostering sustainability and tackling the global challenges we face. As society continues to grapple with issues such as climate change, resource depletion, and social inequality, sustainability knowledge becomes essential in all industries. The Change Leader Program recognizes the urgency of incorporating sustainability into every curriculum, ensuring that graduates from diverse fields are equipped with the tools to implement sustainable solutions.
Standardized measurement and monitoring
Thanks to TASK™, these higher education institutions will benefit from a standardized measurement and monitoring tool, which enables them to assess the level of knowledge about sustainability among their students. While recognizing that sustainability knowledge is just one element in the transition to a desirable future, it plays a fundamental role in building a sustainable world. By monitoring their students' understanding of major sustainability issues and their interconnections, these institutions can identify areas of improvement and adapt their teaching methods accordingly.
Empowering future leaders
The integration of sustainability into higher education curricula empowers students to become change agents and leaders in their respective fields. By equipping graduates with a deep understanding of sustainability challenges, strategies, and solutions, these institutions are nurturing a new generation of professionals who will drive the transition towards a sustainable world. The Change Leader Program ensures that sustainability is not confined to a single discipline but becomes an integral part of every student's educational journey!
As the TASK movement grows, we celebrate these 25 esteemed higher education institutions which already joined the Change Leader Program. By prioritizing sustainability education and aiming to certify at least 75% of their graduates within three years, these institutions are demonstrating their commitment to creating a sustainable future. Through the standardized measurement and monitoring provided by TASK™, these institutions will have a valuable tool to assess and enhance sustainability knowledge among their students. By integrating sustainability into their curricula, they are equipping future leaders with the necessary knowledge to address the challenges facing our planet. Together, they are paving the way for a brighter and more sustainable world!
