The FFEA system, currently only available in Dutch, is a strategic instrument for all kinds of organizations to discover if they are prepared for the future - and if not, how to increase the chances for survival.


This method is also called "The Seven Competences for Sustainable Develop-ment". It is applied as an instrument for personal professional development, and by organizations for HRM.

Universities and Schools apply it for the (re)development of competence profiles and curricula of study programs.

More detailed information about FFEA  is available here. You will learn about its structure and about the way in which it it is applied.


A method for Universities and Schools

The "Assessment Instrument for Sustainability in Higher Education" is used as a strategic method for the implementation of SD.
It may be considered as the educational variant of TGO. It is available in several languages, e.g. English and Dutch.

Roorda developed many smaller tools, such as: scans, workshops, forums, serious (computer) games.
They can be used separately. FFEA offers a good way to discover which of them are suitable in a given context.

 SD Curriculum Scan

A method for Universities and Schools

The Scan is a method that maps the SD contents of a study program in a systematic way. As a result, not only the contents but also their relations become visible structurally, and "white spots" are discovered, as a first step towards curriculum improvements.
