Get an introduction to UN’s sustainable development goals (SDGs) for the sustainable city and utility.
Through theory and praxis, you will get to explore how ENERGY & WATER uses pedagogical tools to create sustainable cities. This includes an introduction to how the SDGs and the three dimensions of sustainability (economic, social and environmental) are connected and how they supplement each other. We will shortly present the cognitive, behavioral and social competencies related to the SDGs – all exemplified by SDG 13 Climate Action.
Lastly, you will get to zoom in on SDG 4 Quality Education and explore the three learning rooms of ENERGY & WATER – Greater Copenhagen Living Lab. This will include a presentation of our pedagogical tools, our term of technology, databased storytelling, factfulness, together with problem-oriented and interdisciplinary education connected to real world problems. The presentation will be followed by cases from ENERGY & WATER.

- Inspiration to educate about UN’s SDGs about the sustainable city and utility
- Education partnership for UN’s SDGs for the sustainable city and utility
