Data and digital technology for environmentally sustainable societies
The programme is designed to build a digital sustainability mindset as well as give the participants an introduction to the Danish context taking the point of departure in the Danish digitalization and sustainability experiences. Furthermore, the program is designed on the belief that transition towards a sustainable future is not a single-standing effort by any one public agency but a strategic objective that must be cross-cutting and undertaken at all levels of government and society. The programme aims to enable application of digital technologies to promote environmental sustainability in the local contexts and institutions the participants are working in.
The programme participants comes from 4 different countries; Brazil, Ghana, Kenya and South Africa. The countries are involved in different sector programmes within digitalization and sustainability. To support the outcome (see figure) of the course the classes will be built on a “blended learning” approach, using a wide variety of learning forms to guarantee an optimal outcome for each participant.
The course will be centered around classic lectures combined with cases, videos and assignments to reflect on. The participants will also join team based learning as well as individual based learning sessions. Experimental based learning will be achieved though working with a hands-on project and data (by the use of technology tools, analytics and possibly own data). Peer-based learning with focus on a structured learning process between the participants.
