Join UCD Innovation Academy’s upcoming online information session on June 14th at 1pm to learn more about the UCD Graduate Diploma in Design Thinking for Sustainability.

Every aspect of the global economy is changing rapidly due to the effects of climate change. As a result, employers need people who are agile and innovative, and who understand these sustainability challenges. Not just from a business perspective but also scientific, regulatory, and ethical viewpoints.

Through this course you will understand key concepts such as the circular economy, decarbonisation, and just transition. You’ll become well-versed in an iterative approach to product and service design – trying, testing, and trying again. And you’ll learn how to embrace your creativity and entrepreneurial side to lead change, embed sustainability, and address complex challenges.

Everything you’ve learned will be put into practice with a project to look at a real-world sustainability challenge. This will be set by one of our industry partners, who have previously included ESB, Oxfam, Dublin City Council, and SuperValu.

By the end of this course you’ll be ready to reposition your career for the emerging green economy.

Hear from Thomas Macagno, Programme Director and Entrepreneurial Innovation Lead – Sustainability. UCD Innovation Academy’s Recruitment team will also be on hand to answer any questions you may have on the application process and funding.
