Strategic Environmental Development (SED)
The SED course forms a real-life application of the knowledge and skills acquired at this stage of the programme and is centred around a task formulated by a client somewhere in Europe. On completion of the course the student shall be able to:
- Apply sustainability concepts, tools and strategies in a real-world context;
- Systematically approach, analyse and intervene in a real-life complex system;
- Perform a task for professional client
- Show fundamental skills in professional conduct in performing a task for a client.
- Describe the steps involved in putting together a report for a non-academic audience.
The course is based on a real case and involves a site visit to gather and analyse information. A case could eg be to assess the development of a waste management/energy system in a city or region, or identify/assess business opportunities that incorporate environmental objectives. This requires a thorough understanding for how the complex system works in order to find ways in how to improve.
