UCC's University Wide Module in Sustainability is open to all staff and students of UCC. Staff that take part in the module will receive a CPD certificate and Digital badge at the end. The module takes an interdisciplinary approach, with lectures delivered by faculty from across the university. The assessment involves reflective learning diaries and a final presentation linking the global goals to local action. The module thus covers the "Lifelong learning and continuing education in sustainability" aspect of the credit.
