Partner Universities

The Virtual Academy of Sustainability supports you in providing your students with teaching in the spirit of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). We offer you a wide selection of video-based courses from renowned university lecturers with a sustainability focus, which you can use at your university.

The courses are ideally suited for integration into the Studium Generale, open studies or elective courses. However, they can of course also be embedded in compulsory modules or used to supplement your own teaching.

Since our foundation in 2011, numerous universities have already used the teaching offer of the Virtual Academy of Sustainability and thus more than 20,000 students have already been able to participate in ESD teaching events.

If you would also like to become a partner university, or would like more information about the process, please contact us at: info@va-bne.de or denis.pijetlovic@uni-bremen.de
