We'll give you the knowledge and skills you'll need to lead the way to a more sustainable future in business, government and society.In the first trimester our taught modules give you an up-to-date knowledge of key sustainability challenges, and of the scientific findings and policy issues that underlie them. Delivered mainly through online material you will have 3 weeks of face to face learning in Cambridge for full-time students or 2 weeks of face to face learning in Cambridge for part-time students. You'll develop your ability to understand complex environmental, economic and social systems and apply this knowledge to help create a more sustainable future. In the second trimester you'll learn how to apply this knowledge as a sustainable business and for a sustainable economy. You'll spend time learning and living at the Eden Project in Cornwall (2 weeks) experiencing first-hand how it functions as a world-renowned visitor attraction and as a sustainable business.
