Training Course on Environmental Sustainability, Planning and Policy


About The Course

Course Description

How will this Training Course on Environmental Sustainability, Planning and Policy help me? This Training Course on Environmental Sustainability, Planning and Policy will increase your expertise and grasp of ecological theory, concepts, and practice, as well as the capacity to impact and progress policy and planning solutions for government, corporate, and regulatory organizations’ global sustainability concerns.

This is an introductory course to environmental and sustainability planning that will quickly explore the key principles that planners need to understand about these topics. Ecological theory, geographical analysis, and planning, environmental economics, environmental services, and power planning are some of the topics covered. Each of these subjects will be examined in the context of planning, to equip you to deal with these challenges in your professional practice. As a review course, we will concentrate on key themes and basic ideas rather than the deep or technical examination that a more specialized course may provide. However, studying various environmental problems has the advantage of allowing us to evaluate the relationships between them.

This training course will empower you with the opportunity to learn essential skills in a rapidly evolving professional field, as well as make you highly marketable in a variety of disciplines, allowing you to contribute to the building of more sustainable urban settings. This course will look at social and environmental sustainability using stakeholder theory, systems thinking, and case studies as a base, to give participants the knowledge and skills they need to make longer economic value while also building ecological health and good infrastructure.

Training Methodology

This Training Course on Environmental Sustainability, Planning and Policy is based on the adult learning paradigm and is very practical and results driven. Before taking participants through conversation and practice to help them make sense of the themes, the facilitator will offer a lot of feedback. Participating in class discussions is an important part of this course, and case-based discussions require a significant amount of preparation time. We will attempt to apply the sustainability principles discussed in the lecture to a real-world planning problem during the case discussions. Participants will be asked to offer a recommendation and argue their viewpoint in cases that are arranged around an issue or choice that needs to be made. There will be suggestions and help on how to prepare for case-based learning. The scenarios are designed to teach participants how to think like decision-makers. Participants will be required to choose a plan of action based on solid reasoning in the situations. Our facilitators are seasoned industry experts with years of experience, working as professionals and trainers in these fields. All facilitation and course materials will be offered in English.
