Our planet is becoming one of the most talked about topics. From new energy sources to the implementation and enhancement of sustainable practices worldwide - it's all trending. It's about time to restore the balance between the Earth and human prosperity. To do so, as a community, it is vital to battle against climate change and natural disasters. The Innovations for Sustainability programme focuses on sustainable development as a framework to analyse and develop innovative solutions for the most important problems of our time. It puts a special emphasis on environmental issues, such as waste, water, energy, biodiversity, sustainable cities and climate change. The programme covers technology, management and policy while putting the focus on natural sciences. Modern teaching and learning methods are used: a modular curriculum, an integrated thematic approach, student-centred learning strategies and competencebased learning. In the latter, concrete situations from professional practice are the starting point for acquiring knowledge and skills. Furthermore students are responsible for their own learning processes, while coached by lecturers.
