Unleash your potential: Sustainable Futures Online Course

The Sustainable Futures online course at Bristol has been taken by over 5,700 people, including over 2,000 students. It uses video case studies of people making a difference in diverse ways - including homelessness and housing, microplastics and the circular economy, food waste and sewage to energy.


The course uses honest and open interviews with our video contributors regarding the challenges they have faced and the way they work with others and encourage personal reflection by the participants about the roles they can take and the challenges they face.

The online discussions have been extensively used (with 47% of participants actively engaging in them) and created a highly supportive environment. Feedback from participants shows that the course has motivated many to change their behaviour, to engage more in communities and volunteer, to consider sustainability related career paths, and to take more care of their own wellbeing.
