The multi-faceted challenges the global community currently faces require a deep reflection on the way we teach sustainability and on our role as teachers. The climate crisis, energy security, and food accessibility have all become intertwined and lead to competing priorities in business and society. For teachers at business schools and technical universities, this raises important questions: Do the management models and decision-making heuristics we teach still fit this reality? How can we design new sustainability-related syllabi and refresh our teaching approaches? The aim of this workshop is to bring together experienced teachers as well as those starting to teach to generate a debate on revitalizing sustainability teaching. The format is interactive, including panel and roundtable sessions which provide a platform to discuss current topics and reflect on their own teaching approach.
