Information about Sustainable Development Degrees

Sustainable Development is a branch of Environmental Studies & Earth Sciences that focuses on solving issues of Ecology, Biodiversity, and Conservation, tapping into the natural resources the Earth already has and using them to their full potential.

Sustainable Development is an interdisciplinary field, which involves knowledge from Environmental Economics, Policy Making, and Resource Management. Sustainable Development is a subject that aims to limit the usage of fossil fuels and encourages the adoption of alternative renewable energy sources that can limit human impact on the environment. As a student taking a Sustainable
Development degree, you will have to determine if a project is efficient enough or if it will just drain resources and damage the environment in the long run.

Additionally, sustainability experts also analyse aspects related to economic growth, as this is the main factor behind unsustainable practices. You'll have the opportunity to be one of the brilliant minds that comes up with revolutionary solutions to environmental problems.
