Content

Complex environmental problems require creative, multidisciplinary approaches, and many environmental professionals argue that the management of those problems is primarily about understanding and working with people. Whatever your interest is, be it coastal planning, wildlife conservation, pollution or waste management, climate change adaptation, or simply linking sustainability with other disciplines, skills in environmental social science will be invaluable for your future career. In this unit we will explore how social science can help us understand diverse socio-economic perspectives on environmental issues; tools for stakeholder and community engagement, conflict and dispute resolution; and how to develop powerful and effective strategies for fostering sustainable behaviours.
