Gain expert insights in an online summer school in Sustainability

As the planet progresses further into the 21st century, the topic of sustainability is a top priority.

This programme will help you understand the challenges that mankind is facing, as well as the opportunities that will help transform the global economy into a sustainable and future-minded model.

Sample Sustainability Modules

To see how the Online Insights programme is structured, please view the timetable.
  • Module 1 - Globalisation

    Over the last 50 years, the planet has seen unprecedented growth and globalisation, as the world becomes increasingly interconnected through a rise in trade, travel and technological advancement. What are the advantages and disadvantages of such rapid change to our planet? Do the positives outweigh the negatives in the long term, and is this rate of growth sustainable?
  • Module 2 - Eco-Activism

    In this class, you will discuss whether it is possible for environmental activism to push boundaries too far. Do protesters, campaign groups and charities run the risk of being perceived as threatening, which in turn becomes counterintuitive to their cause? Are there approaches to eco-activism that hinder progress rather than help?
  • Module 3 - Competitive Advantages and Innovation

    You will explore the components, processes, and objectives of management practice. Examine how policies, practices, and systems influence employee behaviour, attitudes, and performance, and the subsequent managerial tools that can be deployed. You will also be introduced to case studies as a method for testing management. You will explore the components, processes, and objectives of management practice. Examine how policies, practices.
  • Module 4 - Emerging Technology

    As renewable energy, carbon-free transport and more effective greenhouse gas emissions management become more and more widespread - what is next? We look at new technological advances are around the corner that will help transform the world’s conventional linear economy to become a circular economy.
