The ELS course Empowerment for Sustainability (running in 2019-2020), coordinated by Valentina Tassone, is nominated for the WU Excellent Education award 2021!

Throughout the course students explore conceptually the topic of empowerment for sustainability in its multiple facets. In parallel, students create an initiative of own choosing which enable them to engage into ecological, social and existential challenges they care about, and to further explore in action the notions of empowerment and sustainability. The nominated course was taught by Valentina Tassone (ELS) in collaboration with Martijn Duineveld (GEO), Tim Daalderop (ESA), and role play actors Suzanne Prak and Anna van Diepen.
