The climate emergency brings an urgent awareness of the inter-relationships between land and human development.  The pervasive exploitation of natural systems means populations face fundamental challenges for their future.

 

We focus on the fundamental nature of land, how it can be defined, understood, managed and used.  Students develop the skills needed to influence and create resilient and sustainable relationships between lands and cities.  The curriculum explores rural and urban environments, harnessing practises of smart growth, understanding planetary boundaries, and opportunities for advocacy for justice and equality.

 

Sustainable Lands and Cities brings together people who are committed to creating, shaping, and conserving sustainable communities.  The programme will appeal to a range of students including recent graduates and career professionals from a variety of backgrounds in the public, private and third sectors.
