The modern world faces a range of critical environmental problems. In this course, we are going to focus on some of the ways in which they are already being countered - and may continue to be so in the near future. So, looking at the environment as a socio-material network encompassing man, we will examine the multiple meanings of “sustainable development”; consider different ways in which to engage in such a transition; identify different actors and interests; and discuss foreseeable outcomes of different kinds of action, as well as non-action.
Time: The lectures will be held on Wednesdays from 9 to 11 am. The first lecture is on September 4th (dates are subject to alteration).
The current program, course literature, time schedule and location of the course will be subjects to changes before the start of the autumn semester 2020. International students studying at the UCPH in the autumn 2020 can explore the program to get an understanding of the content and flow of the course.
