SUST3888: Sustainable Innovation

2024 unit information

Innovation has brought us huge advantages in almost every area of our lives, but challenges such as climate change, diminishing resources and inequality mean that it has never been more important to innovate sustainably. Sustainable innovation encompasses science and technology, design and cultural aspects, as well as new business models. In this unit you will work in a group to develop solutions to real-world problems, using sustainable innovation approach. You will learn the principles of the circular economy, and how to apply it through technical solutions (such as materials) as well as new business models. You will learn higher order thinking skills such as design thinking and systems thinking, both of which are critical to develop sustainable solutions. Finally, working in an interdisciplinary team, you will develop viable solutions to real-world problems, that will help us create a more sustainable future.
