    Description

    "Sustainable development" is a relative term: it is development that moves us from the present state towards a more nearly sustainable state. This case study compares the environmental, economic and social aspects of a local choice: that of hand dryers for the washrooms of a small company. The alternatives - cloth towel, paper towel, slow electric dryer, fast electric dryer - are compared and the reaction of stakeholders (the employees of the company) are explored, using the 5-step method described in the Tool Kit for exploring proposals for sustainable development.

    Here you can find more information on the 5-step methodology for sustainability assessment of technological proposals (Ashby et al., 2015) and the package with templates and handouts for group work: Teaching Package: Active-learning ToolKit - Sustainable Development
