Work on current development issues such as poverty reduction, refugee flows and food security. You deal with changes within living conditions of people in developing countries and Europe.
How can we, with 7 billion people on Earth, keep our living environment healthy? That is something you will learn in the Environmental Sciences degree programme. You will learn to research environmental issues such as pollution, depletion of natural resources, and climate change from a natural sciences and social sciences perspective. You will also learn how you can identify and design sustainable solutions.
You learn how important nature is to society. You will delve into the ecological processes of nature reserves all over the world, including the role of animals, forests, other vegetation and the landscape. However, you will also deal with the more social aspects of nature, such as policy, the economy and how people experience nature.
Bridge the gap between science and society and guide negotiations on the use of space, nature, the environment, water and health. You will learn about effective communication strategies, media and conditions to develop effective messages.
The International Land and Water Management degree programme primarily focuses on parts of the world where natural resources are becoming increasingly scarcer. Drought and flooding can ruin harvests. By combining knowledge of climate, soil, water, and socioeconomic circumstances, a contribution will be made towards the integration of improved irrigation systems, reservoirs, terraces, and soil protection.
