SustainaBul MBO

Sustainable development is becoming increasingly important in education. The MBO is also making great strides. SustainaBul MBO is a network of schools that tries to achieve further sustainability in MBO education. They do this through knowledge sharing and cooperation during various meetings. There is also a cooperative ranking in which they encourage each other to take further steps.

Goal of the SustainaBul MBO

With the SustainaBul, Learning for Tomorrow, in collaboration with the Goldschmeding Foundation, to achieve further sustainability in education. We do this by positively stimulating and inspiring education through collaboration, knowledge sharing, peer consultation and benchmarking (how do you score on integrally embedding sustainability in the institution? How does this score compare to other institutions? And where are the areas for improvement to take further steps?).

This is how we and our members contribute in an inspiring and positive way to the quality improvement and renewal of education and the joint development towards a sustainable society and labor market!

"In today's society, it is our social mission for MBO schools to prepare our students well for the professions of the future. The world around us is constantly changing. In it, there are many themes that are important. The climate, energy, food and human and animal welfare, these are the themes that are important." - Cyrille van Bragt, Board of Directors at Yuverta

Approach of SustainaBul MBO

SustainaBul MBO is a network of schools trying to achieve further sustainability in MBO education. They do this through knowledge sharing and cooperation in various meetings. The SustainaBul is based on the Whole School Approach for sustainable development and peer consultation therefore takes place around the themes of education, practice, operations and their integral approach.

Participants also complete a questionnaire on sustainability within the school. These questions provide a clear framework for a sustainable school and help in drafting and monitoring sustainability policies. The questionnaire and methodology can also be used as a benchmark tool. At the end of the year, all participants are festively honored at the presentation of the SustainaBul. With this we put the schools and the role they play in the transition in the spotlight! Because all roles are important in the transition, we work with three categories: Kickstarters, Accelerators and Leaders.

"SustainaBul MBO is a tool to get schools moving. On the one hand it is a good way to do a baseline measurement yourself to see where you stand on the various sustainability themes and thus where there are still opportunities for improvement. At the same time, you are immediately exposed to a network of like-minded people within other MBO schools who are learning and implementing the same themes. So it immediately provides a community where you can collaborate, share knowledge and ask questions. It also gives a very good transparent picture about the things that are going well and the things in which you still have to learn." - Tessa Kramer, sustainability project leader at Mediacollege Amsterdam
