Sustainability Action and You

Equip students with the foundational practical and technical skills required to become a sustainability practitioner.

Practising sustainability requires an integrated understanding of social-environmental systems as well as coordinated interventions that span time, locations and administrative domains. Therefore in this course, students will be introduced to case studies on different themes (such as food, waste water, forests and lakes) to help them acquire a consolidated understanding of the concepts and skills learned previously. The case studies will provide a detailed understanding of the social, environmental, and ecological dimensions of each of these systems as well as the current challenges associated with them. Reading material on relevant policies and legislation will also be provided.
