"The course is a brilliant introduction of how things can progress to becoming more sustainable. It was especially interesting to learn about different types of sustainability, e.g. social, economic etc. This is an understanding that I will carry with me and apply within my own sector of work. The actions that can be taken to improve sustainability are specific to each career and learning a thorough foundation can inspire thoughts to ameliorate currently unsustainable actions in your field”.

"I found the course thought-provoking and gave me a comprehensive insight into to the principles of sustainable development. The course was well-structured, clear and easy to follow. It had the right amount of detail and the content was very engaging. I especially liked learning about the various aspects of social and economic sustainability. The content is especially relevant in the current climate emergency and provides an excellent overview of the various ways in which we can achieve sustainable development. I highly recommend this course to other QMUL students!”
