A knee-jerk reaction, that’s what a good headline brings. However, behind the headline is the story and that’s what we’re interested in. We want our students to look at the bigger picture and challenge what they see and read. Regardless of the degree students study, we want to give them the skills to question and tackle the world’s issues.

We are doing this through Education for Sustainable Development, Curriculum Transformation, online sustainability courses, Living Labs and extra-curricular opportunities.

We are providing the resources, so students can take the next step; this is the Leicester Graduate

Top 3 learnings:

1. Educational institutions have a responsibility to teach more than just their subjects.

2. The Sustainable Development Goals are a platform for interdisciplinary sparking conversations and ideas.

3. Don’t underestimate a student with a mission.
