Introduction days for Master’s students
Students at various sustainability programmes at Campus Gotland are invited to the introduction days Searching for Sustainability to reflect on the role of education and learning in relation to sustainable development. This is a space for interdisciplinary team work and critical conversation between students and teachers from different backgrounds.
