Minor "Sustainability" (30 ECTS-AP)
Learning Outcome: (1) The minor "Sustainability" at the University of Innsbruck is aimed at students who wish to place specialist knowledge acquired in their studies in the context of ecologically, socially and economically sustainable development. (2) The minor "Sustainability" is based on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations in 2015. The SDGs are understood as a global plan of action for people, planet and prosperity, whose explicit goal is to counteract inequalities and "leave no one behind". The diversity of the topics addressed and to be deal with, between which there are numerous tensions, is at the same time the strength and weakness of Agenda 2030. This variety is reflected in the minor. (3) Graduates of the minor "Sustainability" - have an understanding for systemically networked thinking, - have the ability to handle multidimensional and complex decision situations, which have economic, ecological and social restrictions, to analyse them and name the conditions for participatory and fair decision-making, - have developed an understanding of power structures that sustain the exploitation of human and non-human beings, - have basic knowledge of the phenomenon of climate change, - have knowledge of sustainable use of resources in different areas, - understand how education systems contribute to maintaining or overcoming unsustainable structures, - are aware of the challenges of sustainable development in a wide range of practical fields and have relevant knowledge in selected specialist areas that complement the field of their Bachelor's programme, - have an advanced ability to think and act in a transdisciplinary way and have the ability to consider the sustainability perspective in different professional fields as well as to promote its implementation.
