Abstract

A two-stage survey has been carried out to investigate students’ perception of their own understandings in sustainability topics. The stage one of survey was carried out to test students’ perception before projects and open sessions on topics regarding sustainability issues held. Stage two, consisting of the same questions were carried out after projects and open sessions on sustainability held. Students were assigned a unique project in a team to find a viable solution. The cases selected were recent issues of national importance and great relevance to many individuals. The new approach replaced typical lecture session usually contains definitions, the needs and new trends in sustainability. This information regarding sustainability, usually dynamic and depends on current political, financial, environmental situations, have to be searched, discussed among students and most likely has been obtained by students in other courses. We found a 6% increase in students’ comfortibility and confidence in sustainability issues after the implementation of the projects and these open sessions.
