Sustainable Development: Case Studies in Liverpool City

when 10 June 2024 - 28 June 2024
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. The topic of sustainable development can often be taught too theoretically, at times lacking a global context, and regularly without connecting it to individuals – however, this module overcomes all those obstacles, by teaching in a different, creative and fun way
