Sustainability is an emerging concept that is important for all students to be aware of. At the Australian College of Applied Professions (ACAP), we sought to provide common content across the disciplines of Psychology, Counselling, Social Work, and Criminology to promote sustainability to our students. From this, we aimed to highlight the key aspects of sustainability needed for students and professionals, helping them avoid burnout and provide sustainable practices in their careers. This unit has received positive feedback from both students and staff.
