This course provides an overview of different perspectives on the concept of
sustainability. Based on this the course looks at international agreements and cooperation concerning sustainable development and important organisations that are involved in these matters. For example, how are sustainability policies and goals initiated and shaped? Which actors are important in these processes? How are these policies and goals implemented at various levels of multilevel governance (as illustrated by the EU system)?


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
