This course will discuss links between selected environmental parameters (both natural and built) and human health. Major environmental challenges such as climate change, environmental pollution, and the state of ecosystems will be used to highlight the need for ecosystems approaches as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

    Applications are open until 30 April 2017.
