Sustainable Entrepreneuship

Sustainability is a key concept for the future: The 17 Sustainable Development Goals of UN have helped systematizing the gigantic challenges we are facing. However the problems come in many different shades in local and regional contexts. This is why it is essential to learn how to frame and explore concrete problems– and ultimately develop more optimal solutions for both society and environment. The entrepreneurial and innovative methods you will learn to apply have a very broad relevance: Regardless of career plans you will find yourself standing in “uncertain situations where you have to create what is not there yet” (Stine Trolle Elmholdt, AU, 2018).
