Världens eko 7.5 hp
Världens Eko is an orientation course on sustainable development and global change. The course is taught in Swedish.
Students can also take courses from the Master programme Social-Ecological Resilience for Sustainable Development as independent courses:
BALTICLEAD is a leadership programme designed for system entrepreneurship and transformations to sustainability in the Baltic Sea region and Eastern Europe. It is a joint initiative between Stockholm Resilience Centre and the Swedish Institute.
Planetary boundaries and human opportunities
This course gives participants an overview of emerging concepts within sustainability science, like the Anthropocene, planetary boundaries, and resilience. These concepts are at the core of contemporary research and debate on global sustainability. They are key to understanding rapid global environmental change caused by humans, and to assess potential solutions.
Transforming Development: The Science and Practice of Resilience Thinking
With concerns about climate and global environmental changes, and increases in social, economic, and political turbulence, the concept of resilience is proving useful across a range of sectors as a way to understand and respond to a fast-changing, surprise-riddled world. The course is designed to help practitioners use resilience thinking as a tool to improve development practice and apply systems thinking across and beyond the Sustainable Development Goals.
It is possible to do a traineeship at the Stockholm Resilience Centre. Traineeship positions are announced on our website (Vacancies), together with application details. If you would like to do a traineeship at the SRC but there are no announcements, please contact the person(s) that you are interested in working with directly. We recommend you provide the following information:
Note: The optional course “Traineeship in Social-Ecological Resilience for Sustainable Development” (7.5 ECTS) is for SERSD Master’s programme students only.
