IMPULS | Facilitating Service Learning for Sustainability

IMPULS supports lecturers from all disciplines at the University of Basel who want to integrate the Service Learning approach into their teaching. As IMPULS strives to sensitize students and teachers for sustainable development, both the course content and the student’s projects need to be linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). IMPULS offers lecturers and students a wide range of support and funding opportunities for the course and projects, including financial support as well as support regarding didactic skills for teachers and project management skills for students and expert knowledge for the SDGs. With the support of IMPULS, students are trained to become change agents for sustainability and are inspired and empowered to use these skills in their future professional and personal lives to achieve sustainable development.

The program is offered by the Sustainability Office and is funded by U Change (a program of the Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences) and the University of Basel in 2019 and 2020.
