“No Poverty” is the Sustainable Development Goal number 1. Poverty is a global problem on many levels. Living in poverty causes inequality and hardship in nutrition, education, health and various other aspects. Poverty is often inherited. Social entrepreneurship is one way to address these issues. Students work in interdisciplinary teams to explore, research and understand real world problems around poverty and empathize with people to solve problems and create solutions. Creativity and the ability to develop better solutions together are key competences in future work life.

Ergonomically-friendly online lectures for both lecturer and students
At the start of the Corona crisis, many lecturers and students had to switch from real-life to online lectures, all of a sudden. As a result, the time spend on the computer and sedentary behaviour has increased. In this webinar we will, after going through some basics, offer practical tips and tricks on how to include principles of ergonomics in online lectures. This in order to reduce sedentary behaviour on the one hand, and encourage an ergonomic position while working on the computer on the other, for both lecturer and students.
