Both parts (Vu and SE) of the module are characterized by engaging students in active learning, participation in discussions, presentations and field-trips. An interdisciplinary perspective combines natural science and management and business. This combination should be applied in the alpine region. 


In the first part the emphasis is put on:

- Sustainability of organisations and ecosystems from a stakeholder perspective

- the influence of organisations and stakeholders on the sustainable evolution of ecosystems

- collaborative strategies between single actors for a sustainable development of organisations and ecosystems.

- special consideration of limited natural resources in the alpine region (water management)
