Abstract [en]

1983 was the starting year for an interdisciplinary and sustainability oriented education at Mid Sweden University. In this paper–30 years later–the different versions of the educational program over the years is examined with a focus on developing the students’ environmental consciousness. In 1983 the “slogan” for the education was: “Ecology, economy and technology in cooperation for sustainable development”. In the first decade after the millennia shift the education took a more international focus attracting students from countries all over the world.  A Master’s level was added and the first graduate students received their Ph.D. during this period. The latest development is to split the Bachelor’s program into three “sister” programs complementing the “old” Ecotechnology students with Ecoengineers, given a slightly more traditional engineer focus (but still interdisciplinary), and Ecoentrepreneurs with more social entrepreneur focus. Is a next interesting step to increase the interdiciplinarity even more over the faculties, towards the humanities?
