Sustainability studies: concepts, challenges and approaches
Sustainability studies: concepts, challenges and approaches (SASI02) is an introduction course to the interdisciplinary field of sustainability studies.
The student is introduced to some of the approaches, theoretical concepts and tools used in sustainability studies. The course uses problem solving and critical approaches to explore some key sustainability challenges, e.g. climate change, biodiversity loss, ocean acidification and land-system change. The course integrates natural and social dimensions of these challenges. In this way it covers the scientific understanding of, theoretical perspectives on, and social perceptions of major sustainability challenges.
