KEATS Sustainability & Climate: Learn, Discover, Take Action module is a fully co-created, open-access and interdisciplinary module covering the biggest topics in sustainability from climate change and food, to sustainable finance and social justice.
Developed by students, alumni, academics and professional services staff, it is a module that was designed by the King’s community, for the King’s community.
It aims not just to equip participants with sustainability knowledge, but to help them to develop the agency to take action on the issues that most concern them.
Offered as an online course, interactive features are embedded into the module through Padlets, pledges and discussion forums.
Each year, there are two module completion deadlines. Students who successfully complete the course by March are eligible for a King’s Experience Champion for Change Award. To receive this, participants must pass the module assessment, which consists of a personal statement and creative submission (to submit by April). Successful participants receive a certificate and badge, and completion is recorded in students’ Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR).
Those who complete the module by June and submit their creative outcome receive a Sustainability Award, including a certificate and badge. This won't be recorded in students HEAR.
The current estimated time to complete the module is 15 minutes per week. The seminar series runs monthly, each session lasting around 90 minutes.
