Croí – Your Life, Your Career


This series of videos presents an abstract from the Croí process where individuals are guided to define their personal (or core) and professional values, and to identify actions they can take that will help them to develop a career that better aligns their personal and professional values and lives.

Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it

People establish meaningful connections to sustainability through their personal (or core) values. A new generation of graduates who can truly align their work with these values needs to emerge, ensuring that their professional lives promote sustainability.

Croí supports transitions through higher education by helping individuals explore their core values and goals, motivating them to pursue definite directions and take action towards their aspirations. Croí is also shown to serve as a professional identity development tool.

Engagement with Croí has been shown to foster core thinking and doing and responsible thinking, increasing the likelihood of responsible behaviours that can expedite sustainability transitions. Furthermore, Croí facilitates skill development, enabling graduates to make meaningful, creative, and responsible contributions upon graduation. Accelerating impactful contributions within teams can lead to faster and more effective solutions to urgent environmental, societal, and economic problems.

Croí is not presented as a cure-all for the complex issue of sustainable development but provides a foundation for advocating core and responsible education at the tertiary level.

Croí is a playlist available on YouTube, consisting of a series of nine videos linked to accompanying resources and worksheets. It is suitable for higher education students, with each step taking 30 to 90 minutes to complete, depending on the students’ level.

Educators and students should follow each step (1-9) by watching the videos, reading the related texts, and using the accompanying worksheets and resources. Croí works best when students progress through it in a self-directed manner, supported by educators through general guidance, a class plan, and a timeline tailored to the specific class group.
