GPSS-GLI considers field-based courses (Global Field Exercise and Resilience Exercise: http://www.sustainability.k.u-tokyo.ac.jp/exercises) as one of the core contents of its curriculum. These courses take students to the locations where actual sustainability challenges are happening. In these courses, students learn the reality of each sustainability challenge through interacting with various local actors and discussions on possible strategies to the status quo. This paper addresses the effectiveness of the field-based courses in terms of five key competencies in sustainability science education. The preliminary outcome of this work was presented at the 4th GPSS-GLI International Symposium on November 2015 (report of the 4th GPSS-GLI Symposium is available athttp://www.sustainability.k.u-tokyo.ac.jp/events/3209.html).
