Intendierte Lernergebnisse

Students will get acquainted with a variety of approaches to conceive of sustainable development

Students will be able to better position their research in the field of sustainability sciences and the discourse on sustainable development

Students will identify some of the implicit assumptions underlying their research and by that, will critically reflect on the limits and potentials of their own work

Lehrmethodik inkl. Einsatz von eLearning-Tools

The course will be held as a block seminar, including an introductory meeting, the participation in the “BOKU Nachhaltigkeitstag” (a workshop on sustainable development), and a two day stay outside Vienna. We will provide introductory texts on Social Ecology and the SDG’s. In addition, students will prepare presentations on their research approach, including relevant literature for their work. The two-day block seminar will include group work and discussions. Students will write a short reflection paper summing up their major findings.


Socio-ecological research contributes to a better understanding of current sustainability problems: a variety of methods and analytical frameworks aim at identifying the scope and trends in resource use, its environmental impacts and / or socio-political context. Such scientific approaches assume that understanding unsustainability is a prerequisite for a transition towards sustainable development.

Depending on the choice of methods, different sustainability problems are addressed, focusing on specific environmental problems, actors, types of behavior, etc. This diversity corresponds to a broad range of sustainability problems detected by different social actors. The recent formulation of the 17 UN sustainable development goals (SDG’s) reflects this diversity.

In this seminar, we discuss the socio-ecological research conducted by the participants in their Master or PhD theses against the framework provided by the SDG’s.
