About the programme

Design School Kolding has worked with sustainability in research, education and development projects for more than 20 years. We profoundly believe that a sustainable strategy must be part of the efforts to solve global problems with regard to resources, working conditions and pollution.

The Programme enables you to adopt sustainability as a fundamental mindset. This allows you to create new and relevant products and services that are valuable and meaningful to users, along with new business developments within for instance circular economy and sharing economy.

As part of the Programme, you will also work with developing and facilitating a sustainable strategy within established companies and production.
