This project consists of a Massive Open Course on Sustainability. The dream is to draw in diverse stakeholders - e.g. campaigners, companies, universities, schools, etc. - from around the world, to create a huge forum for education, discussion & campaigning (using Moodle). A MOOC is perfect for global discussion of global issues, breaking down barriers between demographic groups, nations and stakeholders - and breaking down barriers between education, campaigning and environmental action. Please share your thoughts and join up. How can we increase interest through social media?Jeff Waistell, Senior Lecturer, Faculty of Business, Oxford Brookes University

The core motivation for the project is to support a more sustainable approach to the environment, through involving diverse stakeholders, and by combining education, discussion and campaigning. The context is that there is currently no known MOOC on sustainability. The challenges we aim to address are:
-to engage different stakeholders (e.g. learners, campaigners, companies, etc.) in a dialogue on sustainability.
-to collapse the traditional boundaries between education, discussion and campaigning - so that learning about sustainability translates into action.
-to provide a learning platform that appeals to a broad range of people, including those with no or limited experience of online learning.
