|Sustainable Development in the Global Context, 15 ECTS Credits|
|AIM OF THE COURSE|
|The aim of the course is to gain scientific understanding of global environmental issues. Students will conduct various analyses of environmental and resource preconditions for global relations.|
|The awareness of environmental issues has, to a high degree, contributed to an increased attention towards global relationships during the last several years. This course focuses on the question of how global flows of resources, trade, materials and goods have developed, particularly during the post-war period, as well as on how the political and ideological debates on these issues have developed. Additionally, different theories concerning these changes are evaluated. This course is interdisciplinary; both social and natural sciences will be considered in the course, and through laboratory experiments, field excursions, lectures and seminars, students gain a scientific understanding of global environmental problems.|
|Lectures, seminars, laboratory exercises, field excursions|
|This course is examined through active participation in seminars, field excursions and laboratory exercises, and individual written essays.
