Dear Learners,

Together, we reached the end of the open course. Yet, the journey towards a sustainable future is only starting.

Tom Bosschaert’s book ‘Symbiosis in Development – Making New Futures Possible’ expands on the contents of this course. Over 460 pages of 20 years of experience in systemic sustainability, the book broadens the scope of our open course with case studies, real-life stories, graphs, and contribution articles. The book also includes more advanced topics, such as practical co-creation tools, that we will be covering in the Professional course.

The first run of the course has been an utmost pleasure for us, and we hope you feel the same way. As a ‘thank you’ for the enriching experience during this course, we decided to give away one book. All you have to do is:

  1. Like Except Integrated Sustainability on LinkedIn—integrated-sustainability

  2. Make a LinkedIn post where you explain your most important takeaway from the course – How did the SiD theory impact your understanding of sustainability, and how will you use it in your professional field? Don’t forget to tag Except! Only this way we can see your post.

  3. We will choose the winner randomly using an online lottery tool. The winner will be informed about her/his luck on DATE, and contacted for the shipping details*.

We’re looking forward to reading your posts, and we wish you all the best of luck!

Warmly, Tom, Mattia, Mariana, and Zuza

*We ship outside of Europe, but our experience shows that the delivery rate is only about 50%. To increase the chances of getting the pack, we advise a non-European potential winner to cover the extra costs for a courier rather than regular shipping that we cover.
