Living Labs - Next Chapter for Sustainability in Tertiary Education

Tags: tertiary education | living lab


This report makes the case for the tertiary education Living Lab as a highly
effective tool for delivering practical benefits to an institutio n’s core education,
research, practice, and engagement activities. It simultaneously describes how
Living Labs can help align sustainability with these activities by facilitating
education for sustainable development, practice-based sustainability research,
sustainability practice, and external engagement. This report argues that making
investments in a Living Lab for either one or more of these areas is not only
worthwhile, but also important for tertiary education institutions.
