Student Space

First Day Task: SD barriers & solutions from three different perspectives

The following lists of sustainable development barriers and solutions were compiled by the students on the first day of the field trip following presentations on various aspects of sustainable development at the University of Graz. The students were formed into three groups of five and asked to provide their views of problems and opportunities associated with SD at three different levels in the Czech Republic: the university, the region, and the country. The students undertook this task in the form of a 'World Cafe' where they changed perspective every 15 minutes while one student remained static to act as rapporteur.
