About the course

The course aims to provide deeper understanding of central theories in the interdisciplinary science field Sustainability Science. Students are introduced to the complex environmental problems that characterize the current state of the world in terms of major sustainability challenges (climate change, biodiversity, etc.). Concepts such as resilience, risk and systems analysis are central components of the course. The course uses a so-called challenge-driven pedagogy and is divided into two modules (a theory and a project module), which will run in parallel during the course.
