Sustainability Literacy Test Report
KEDGE Business School, 2014
We are certain that the more students we bring into the survey, the more impact we will have at the international level. And more importantly, the next version of the tool will be even better.
We are at the beginning of an adventure. The 200 volunteers from all over the word who have worked hard to create this pilot version know that the test can be even better. The versions which will follow will have more systems-based questions; will focus not only on issues but also on solutions; and we are currently thinking about a version that will offer students a certificate and yet another version that has the answers, sources, videos, Pdfs or even links to MOOCs to go further, broader and deeper in their learning…
But like the first photograph ever taken with a “camera obscura” (Joseph Nicéphore Niépce 1828), the snapshot of our students’ sustainable development knowledge will probably be a blurry picture, but at least it will exist! It took quite a few years to evolve from the technology of that first photo taken to get to today’s numeric HD 3-D color photography. What will the tool to measure knowledge (and probably skills and competencies) in sustainability look like in 10 years? We don’t know! But we do know that we need as many photos as possible, from as many universities as possible from all over the world to be able to improve our tool. Won’t you help us make this tool better for a better world in the future?
