Micro-credential Summary:

Delve into the complex and challenging environmental issues that we face today, and how we can manage or even solve them. Environmental issues affect every human being, and are a truly global concern. This micro-credential gives a comprehensive introduction not only to the current problems and threats to the environment but also to possible solutions and effective environmental management. You’ll start by learning about the nature of environmental science, resources, the basis of the world’s ecosystem, and the concept of the triple bottom line for sustainability.

With this strong foundational knowledge, you’ll be able to look at the other issues raised over the micro-credential. Not only will you understand them, but you’ll also see how to manage them and what solutions are possible. The term ‘wicked problems’ comes from the field of planning and policy. It refers to issues that are difficult or seemingly impossible to solve. For the rest of this micro-credential, you’ll be taking a close look at the wicked problems that sustainability and environmentalism are currently facing. You’ll unpack global climate change, generation of waste, fossil fuel consumption, and, perhaps most challenging of all, the impact of the human population explosion. You’ll also get to explore potential solutions, such as renewable energy sources, and how environmental impacts can be lessened with effective management.

This is a non-creditable micro-credential which is awarded a digital badge and Certificate of Completion which can be shared to your social networks and displayed in your professional portfolio.
