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.
This course is offered 'on-demand' from SDG Academy, and is free of charge.
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.
This course ran, free of charge, during Spring 2018, and was hosted by SDG Academy. It is currently not available.
