Microtraining Sustainable Lifestyle(Resource ID: 23)

Sustainable lifestyle affects different life domains, such as: mobility, nutrition, leisure and travel, consumption, living, use of resources and energy. It is more important than ever to act sustainably in everyday life, which means to decide in favor of environmentally conscious and socially responsible options. Personal learning for change is the first requirement. Microtraining is a way to give people in a short time information and to support informal learning and peer-to-peer learning. "Sustainable lifestyle Microtraining“ can be integrated in courses with or without reference to sustainability. Over a period of 3 months to a semester short inputs stimulate the reflexion of the own lifestyle, promote the exchange with other peers and start change processes.

For the three life style domains "food", "mobility", and "energy" slide sets are available à three "sustainable lifestyle microtraining“ sessions  (each of 15 - 20 minutes). („Energy“ only in German).

These three modules (each consisting of three sessions) are framed by two introductory sessions and an evaluation session at the end, and they can be used individually or as a package. A supplementary manual describes the use and combination options and the microtraining method and provides guidance on implementation details.
