LDE Sustainability Honours Programme

Do you want to contribute to a more sustainable world? In the LDE Sustainability Honours Programme you will gain fundamental knowledge on sustainability and tackle a real-world sustainability challenge.

For students of all academic disciplines

No current background on sustainability? No problem! The LDE Sustainatbility Honours Programme welcomes students of all faculties, since sustainability challenges cannot be solved by a single discipline. The programme is open to motivated second- and third-year bachelor’s students from LDE universities with affinity with the topic.

Aim of the programme

The goal of the LDE Sustainability Honours Programme is to provide you with the knowledge and tools to make a contribution towards a sustainable society. 

The programme runs from November up and to June and is split up into two parts: learning the Sustainability Fundamentals (5 EC) and designing solutions in a real-world Sustainability Challenge (10 EC). 


Upon successful completion of the full programme, you will receive a certificate and have both courses mentioned as extracurricular education on your diploma supplement.
