Description/achievement of initiative

Novia University of Applied Sciences stands for quality in education, regional presence and sustainable ecological, economic and social development.

Our overall objective until 2015, is to implement sustainable development in the curricula of all degree programs. We also run a project, developing a process for enhancing education for sustainable development, together with partners from 10 other universities within the Nordic countries. This project ends 2013 and is partly financed by the Nordic Council of Ministers.

Implementation methodologies

We apply an integrated management system for quality, environment and safety, certified according to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. The main objective is to support our students' progress into quality- and environmentally conscious professionals who take sustainable development into consideration in their future careers.
In the management system we have overall objectives for sustainable development on the university level as well as on the faculty level and within administration. The objectives have been identified in processes involving both staff and students.
