Sustainable Development Case Studies in Liverpool City

when 15 June 2020 - 3 July 2020
language English
duration 3 weeks
credits 5 EC

This module uses the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals 2030 as an analytical framework, and also the city of Liverpool (as a practical classroom, termed “living lab”), to explore and visit case studies of sustainability that are taking place in different urban projects.

This module aims to be taught in a more fun and practical way, rather than too theory focused. Combined with visits, seminars will provide background to local projects and a discussion of the learning objectives.
