Part 1: Diversity and Sustainable
Development In order to understand the meanings and significance of how diversity and sustainability impact each other, you will need a basis. By way of a game, a film, a speaker, some research and much in-depth discussion, you will gain understanding of the complex systemic interrelationship between human diversity issues and the environment.
This course strongly supports the idea of interdisciplinary and intercultural learning experiences with changing perspectives on the topics covered. The 10-day fieldtrip to India is designed for working students with limited time for international travel.
Sustainable development is a key topic that is needed for any higher education institution, and along with diversity is a topic that benefits from the inclusion of students from all different degree programs.
