This course is designed to allow you to explore the frontiers of knowledge in sustainability science via a directed reading programme and problem-based learning.

Sustainability science has emerged in recent years as a new scientific discipline, at the interface between environmental science and sustainable development. Key objectives of the discipline are to develop an understanding of the dynamics of human-environment systems; to facilitate the design, implementation, and evaluation of practical interventions that promote sustainability in particular places and contexts, and to improve linkages between research, innovation, policy and management.
