Building a better World

All of us as humans share life on this planet. You as a professional will have to deal with problems in an increasingly international context. And what is more, professional questions that we have to deal with can no longer be dealt with as isolated issues. Rising inequality between people groups, rising corruption, mass migration, women's rights and aging population are just a few concerns that are felt worldwide.  

In this unique minor you will learn, together with students from different backgrounds, to frame these issues within the new 17 “Sustainable Development Goals” of the United Nations (maybe you remember the 8 Millennium Goals that the UN had until 2015). Thinkers like Jeffrey Sachs en Martha Nussbaum provide a framework.   




  • You will gain a perspective for sustainable development (J. Sachs) with an eye for poverty, health, human rights and peace building; 
  • You will be able to use the UN Sustainable Development Goals as a foundation for your  professional choices; 
  • You will debate about fundamental topics that many countries agree and disagree on 


This minor is open to students from all study-backgrounds. The course is taught in English. 


September - November

The exact timetable will be announced in due time.


In mixed classes you will get to know the different subjects. Learning will take place in many forms. Classes in which topics are introduced, participating in small project groups in which discussion takes place on the subjects of the classes will support you in understanding the concepts better, experiences outside of the school environment will provide a learning place, work groups in which you will learn to work with the UN 'Sustainable Development Goals'.
