An example of good practice in Professionalisation from Ecocampus (Belgium)

University college PXL orients its education towards learning for sustainable development. The Education Service works along two tracks to that end.
1. University college PXL stated in its education policy that its courses integrate the pillar 'professional and personal identity' into the course programmes. This identity is shaped by a linkage between international and intercultural competences, sustainable development competences, language skills and media wisdom.
2. Some courses already pay attention to sustainability issues and adjusted types of assessment and work which are reflected in the curricula. These initiatives are centrally monitored, supported and internally disseminated.
