Climate Action – Power-to-X
Free LUT MOOC, 2 ECTS credits

We have the power. The question is, what will we do with it?

Climate Action – Power-to-X examines how we can satisfy the growing global demand for water, food, fuel and raw materials using little more than renewable energy and the air around us.

Power-to-X refers to the use of sustainable electricity combined with basic chemical building blocks or technologies to recreate sustainable products or energy solutions that aid in achieving the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. Reconstructing a sustainable future through a combination of cutting-edge Power-to-X research and current scientific knowledge is now possible, and the applications of Power-to-X appear almost limitless.

Climate Action – Sustainable Design and Production
Free LUT MOOC, 2 ECTS credits

The products we buy have a story to tell.

Climate Action – Sustainable Design and Production examines the elements of that story, from material selection and product design to manufacturing, use and end of life. We can only move from climate anxiety to climate action through a renewed sense of agency – we can both understand and control the choices we make and be aware of their consequences.

Consequently, we need to develop life cycle thinking and apply adequate sustainability criteria at the moment of purchase. Making sustainable choices about the products we buy has never been as important – or as difficult – as today. However, our choices as consumers can influence manufacturing trends and lead to the achievement of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.

Let's rewrite the story and make choices for a more sustainable future.
