Social Sustainability in the Nordic Region

7,5 credits

The main focus of this course is social sustainability from a Nordic perspective. The course content offers studies of social investments and how they are expressed in different contexts, for example in working life. A special focus on welfare institutions is integrated in the course content.

Nordic organisations are studied from the view-point of their abilities and conditions of social sustainability, shaped by innovative processes, especially on the focus of the relationship between health and lifestyles including aspects of gender and diversity.
