Momentum for the Public Sector
Momentum Novum works together with national, regional, and local governments as well as public administrations around the world on finding ways to mainstream sustainable development in their policies, practices, and projects. We offer our support and assistance in the development, advancement, and implementation processes.
Consulting and Project Support
We help you to assess how sustainable your institute is, make specific recommendations on how it can improve, and directly support you with implementing a variety of projects. We have large experience in a variety of sectors, such as for example improving energy and material efficiency, changing organizational habits or creating more open and sustainable work environments.
Workshops and Leadership Training
We know how important it is for government officials and public servants to remain up to date, especially when it comes to sustainable development. Momentum Novum offers a variety of workshops and training sessions that focus on subjects such as effective leadership and communication with regard to sustainable development. These skills workshops can address specific topics contained in the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or the concept of sustainable development as a whole.
Our workshops foster creative thinking and are hands-on. We use various methods and tools such as design thinking, scenarios, simulations, learning games, and world café formats. Additionally, depending on the city of choice for the workshop and your interests, they may also include visits to sustainable businesses, startups, or other locations.

Lectures, Workshops, and Seminars
We believe that education for sustainable development is key to encouraging individuals and societies to work together towards a more sustainable world. Our educational services are designed to empower learners of any age, at all levels, and in all social contexts. Our tailor-made services will support you with developing new ideas, skills, and behaviours that are needed for sustainable actions, as well as with improving existing processes and structures. From one-day workshops, which cover the basic ideas and integral concepts of sustainable development, to entire seminars over the course of a semester, with specific action labs in which you have the opportunity to test and implement your ideas on sustainable development—we can work with you to find the perfect solution for your interests and needs.
We organise conferences on sustainable development in which participants have the opportunity to learn more about specific areas of sustainable development from the world’s top researchers in the field. Additionally, through our Momentum Action Labs, they can directly develop ideas for sustainable action and work on their implementation together with like-minded peers and through the support of Momentum Novum. We offer action labs on creating startups and producing different media formats, we conduct scenarios and simulations, and much more.

Consulting and Leadership Training
In addition to providing our own educational services, we support educational institutions, such as schools and universities, in becoming more sustainable themselves. Our services in this sector include, but are not limited to:
- assessments and recommendations on how structures and processes can become more sustainable;
- fostering new ideas for sustainable development with innovative methods, such as design thinking and scenario planning;
- leadership training for teachers, researchers, and other actors in the education sector;
- providing direct implementation support with jointly developed sustainability projects.
Academia is an essential pillar of innovation for sustainable development. Therefore, we conduct our own research and cooperate with the world's most renowned universities. In addition to publishing the results of our research in academic journals and books, the findings are directly integrated into our own consulting and education projects.
Another essential pillar of Momentum Novum’s activities is our very own research department, which conducts in-depth and up-to-date research in the field of sustainable development across a wide range of academic disciplines and supports our consulting and educational services with valuable insight. Accordingly, we can ensure that our services at all times reflect the current state of research on sustainable development. In addition to our own research, we regularly fund research projects on sustainable development conducted by universities and other research institutions, and we have numerous cooperation agreements with renowned universities.
