About this course
Today, communities and countries face enormous challenges as their social, economic, and environmental resources are damaged. Acting on the interdependencies of the economic, environmental, and social elements of our world requires a new way of thinking that will create a future where human society and nature can coexist with mutual beneﬁt and where the suffering caused by poverty and natural resource abuse is eliminated.
This course provides a practical guide to understanding sustainable development and how it can overcome the tremendous challenges we are facing right now. In order to do so, we will discuss key principles, present the important 2030 Agenda with its Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), and recommend implementation mechanisms. You will also be presented to fast-paced case studies and examples at the end of the course.
