Virtual academy of sustainability
The Virtual Academy is an internet-based learning platform of the University of Bremen that helps universities in Germany to embed the subject of sustainability more firmly into their curricula. Students can access electronic and video-based courses via the internet any time to familiarise themselves with the concept of sustainability and its potential. The universities use the courses offered by the Virtual Academy in their general studies programmes or to supplement their own sustainability-related courses. The Munich Re Foundation has been funding this inno-vative concept since 2012.
