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 institution’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.
