The activities of the Sustainability College Bruges are inspired and guided by the 2015 UN Sustainable Development Goals and the 2016 European Action for Sustainability. The SCB is composed of a Center for Continuing Education, a Center for Research, a Center for Mediation & Dispute Resolution, and a Center for Advisory Services. It is supported by a large group of SCB Fellows, an International Advisory Board and the Friends of the SCB.

SCB Fellows are experts in environmental, energy, climate change and/or health & safety issues, from the academic, government, profit or non-profit world. They participate in SCB activities in an ad hoc way, based on their expertise.
