Module description

We are often encouraged to think in simple cause and effect ways, but the world is full of complex interacting systems and ‘wicked problems’. This non-mathematical module will give you an introduction to the history of sustainability and how systems thinking can be used to address sustainability challenges. This module will empower you to think in new ways. You will develop a strategy to tackle your chosen sustainability challenge. Your learning will develop core skills such as systems thinking, communication, project management, researching the literature, and presenting.
