Module code


The aim of this module is to ground students in the principles of sustainability and sustainable development, to explore the linkages between theory and practice, and examine how more sustainable futures can be achieved in practice.

The educational aims are to provide an overview of sustainability principles within an international context – including key theories, concepts and appreciation of the contested nature of discourses in this area; develop critical interdisciplinary skills enabling linkages to be made across disciplinary boundaries and professional sectors and to emphasise the cross-cutting nature of sustainability issues and develop skills to examine how individuals and society move towards more sustainable practices.
