Universities hold a crucial responsibility and role to contribute to sustainable development, alson in their education task. The concept of competencies for sustainable development and the idea of using real-world sustainability issues in education are promising approaches to transform sustainability programmes at universities into student-centered learning environments. Especially the educational formats of problem-based learning and project-baed learning foster such a process of educational innovation towards student-centered learning. Moreoever, hybrid forms of problem-based and project-based learning offer added value, but challenges for PPBl courses in sustainability remain salient.
