Drawing on a framework of competencies for sustainability in education previously outlined by UNESCO, the aim of this center is to combine these competencies with relevant learning content on sustainability challenges in health, and translate the framework into operationalized learning principles for health professional education.
Our basic assumption is that we by fostering these key competencies and combining them with health-relevant knowledge and an interdisciplinary approach can prepare future health professionals for making sustainable evidence-based decisions on different levels of health care. SHE will translate and test learning principles as outlined in the implementation model below.
The figure shows how SHE intends to translate learning contents and outcomes into concrete principles for education for sustainable health education.
