Sustainability in Action: From Theory to Practice

Do you care deeply about sustainable development? Would you like to play a role in the implementation of sustainable development goals? Are you interested in STEM theory with a focus on sustainable development in small island states?

If so, our SISSTEM program is the study program for you!

Sustainable development is on the global agenda, but especially small island states are vulnerable due to their small size and the many (largely external) challenges they face. Higher education needs to play a pivotal role in the implementation of sustainable development policies and the corresponding Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

For small island states, besides local governance strategies, local universities play a crucial role in the implementation of the SDGs due to their contextual embeddedness and their knowledge of that specific island state. This is what SISSTEM is about.
