Urban social-ecological systems
Knowledge about the relations between urbanisation and global and local challenges, such as climate change, biodiversity loss, resource deficiency, poverty, justice and health, is of key importance to ensure a sustainable development. This course is trans-disciplinary and urban possibilities and challenges are analysed by using a system approach where ecological, social and economic aspects are integrated. Linkages between science and practice are emphasized throughout the course.
Course period: March - June.
