This presentation showcases three innovative teaching activities implemented within the University of Bologna, each addressing the intersection of wellbeing and sustainability. Drawing on the activities of the UNESCO Chair in Global Citizenship Education in Higher Education, these examples offer practical insights into fostering holistic student development. The first example involves a MA course in Global Citizenship skills for MA students through education activities using a theater workshop and a study visit in Lebanon.  The second activity centers on teacher education in Global Citizenship, enhancing students' global awareness through outdoor education. Lastly, a collaborative initiative with local communities facilitates service-learning projects for local authorities’ professionals focused on sustainable development goals, fostering a sense of civic responsibility among students. Through these examples, the presentation underscores the importance of transversal, interdisciplinary and experiential approaches in higher education to cultivate an embodied approach to sustainability issues.
