WE ARE IE UNIVERSITY
IE University Chain of change
We want to help people think and behave in ways that foster a more sustainable planet: embracing global citizenship, social responsibility, climate action, the use of renewable energy and recycling, as well as fighting against biodiversity loss.
EDUCATION FOR SUSTAINABILITYEDUCATION FOR CHANGEOUR COMMITMENT
At IE we believe that only through education can all of the UN 2030 agenda SDGs be achieved: education to provide knowledge and content, to develop skills and even attitudes that will empower us to act and do things better, making a positive impact on people and the planet.
Our decade of action has already begun. We are working for our people and for our planet by transforming into an experiential place of learning for sustainable development. We are orienting all of our processes towards principles of sustainability – tackling social, environmental and economic issues.
Understanding the big picture in relation to the individual; fostering self reflection and a deeper acknowledgement of our values, spriritual principles and sense of purpose; preparing our minds for the transformation towards a sustainable future for all – this is what at IE we call the sustainable mindset.
• We commit to making fundamental changes in the way that our community consumes goods, and how it manages the waste generated.
• We foster diversity and intercultural understanding, tolerance, mutual respect and an ethic of global citizenship and shared responsibility.
• To reach our goal of educating the best leaders, we equip students with the requisite knowledge, skills, attitudes and values to create a sustainable future. To that end, students cultivate critical and creative thinking skills, engage in authentic interdisciplinary learning activities and develop a value system that emphasizes responsibility to self, others and the planet.
• We will continue to advance our contribution to cutting edge research related to sustainability.
10 YEARS CHALLENGEOUR CHALLENGES2020. RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION
On January 24th we launched the ’10 Years Challenge’ campaign. 10 years, 10 challenges to make an impact on the world as a leading institution in sustainability. We aim to mainstream sustainability into all aspects of the university. This involves rethinking the curriculum, campus operations, as well as the organizational culture. In this way, the institution itself will function as a role model.
We want to inspire people to change their habits to strengthen a behavioral change. The change starts with our people: staff, faculty, students, alumni, and the corporate world. We all want to make an impact on society and on our world.
SUSTAINABILITY AT OUR SCHOOLSSUSTAINABILITY AT OUR SCHOOLS
Our goal is to ensure that all students who graduate from IE are trained as responsible leaders and are aware of their role in building a sustainable world. We aim to enhance IE’s contribution to cutting edge knowledge and innovation related to sustainability.

Sustainable development research enables individuals to reflect on their own actions by considering their current and future social and environmental effects from a global perspective. This then enables them to intervene productively in shaping actions in a more sustainable manner.
