Environmental Challenges


A programme of five short online courses for university credit

The Environmental Challenges programme consists of five short online courses that look at the relationships between people and nature, and the challenging and difficult decisions we face when managing natural resources.

You will see through case studies and discussions that environmental management policies not only need to be economically and environmentally sound, but they also need to be formulated with social fairness if they are to be sustainable.

Accessible for free on desktop, tablet or mobile, the five courses can be taken in any order, providing a flexible way to enhance your environmental management skills and demonstrate your continuing professional development (CPD).
