Social context and cultural background are important drivers of how conservation and environmental sustainability are approached throughout the World. The development of a deeper understanding of the influence of these aspects is best achieved through immersion in a different culture. This unit will improve the understanding of the role of culture and social context in environmental decision making through a study tour of Borneo.  Whilst on the tour students will meet with academics, researchers, government agencies and community groups, including local indigenous communities. Aspects such as wildlife conservation, sustainable urban planning, transportation and human/wildlife conflict will be investigated.
