Concepts in Sustainable Development – Online Couse

Posted by mn251 at Mar 11, 2019 09:25 AM |
Are we doomed? What does the future of sustainability hold? Find out in a new, free online course.

You may have noticed judging from last year’s Beast from the East and this year’s unusually balmy weather the hottest February day since records began! that the world climate is changing. It’s inevitable that we face a future in which global issues will affect sustainability. The question is: what can we do about it?

Our latest free online course Concepts in Sustainable Development – organised by the Social Impact Team – will explore some of the key issues. It tackles big questions such as whether population growth will outrun technology, the importance of geography and the impact of human activity on the environment. It also presents a chance to analyse strengths and weaknesses of collective action.

The course is available to start from 11 March and runs for 6 weeks. It is open to anyone interested in exploring the technical and social issues around sustainability. It goes hand-in-hand with the University’s pledge to follow the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

The course is available through Future Learn.
