Capacity building

LUCSUS enhances individual, organisational, and societal capacity in dealing with and solving sustainability challenges. We enhance collaborations with partners from civil society and the private and public sectors, and provide and develop knowledge, skills and tools needed to support action for sustainable development.

Key activities for LUCSUS capacity work

  • Targeted training courses and programmes
  • Educational films and other materials
  • Capacity building workshops 
  • Policy briefs

LUCSUS works in close collaboration with a range of different partners, civil society and the private and public sectors.

Examples of LUCSUS capacity building work

Educational videos based on our collaborative research in Africa

Education and communication is a central part of our impact work. The medium of film offers the potential for broad outreach and effective communication with a diversity of actors, including those who lack access to traditional forms of academic publishing. The film, therefore, is also an example of moving beyond the mere “reporting back” of findings to those directly involved in the research.
