Strategic Environmental Development (SED)

Strategic Environmental Development (SED) is a compulsory course in the third block of the EMP programme and in Semester 3 of the MESPOM programme.

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.
