Professional Certificate Programme: Sustainable and Inclusive Landscapes

Enhance your transformative thinking and action to build sustainable integrated landscapes and contribute to our world’s SDGs.

We’re facing a number of complex and interrelated problems such as rising food prices, economic downturn, climate change, and increased competition on the use of natural resources.

Integrated landscape approaches have the power to help us solve these problems. They offer new insights and opportunities for sustainable development, but demand new skills and knowledge.

To achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), diverse landscape stakeholders need to find a common ground and learn to understand plural and complex landscape issues, processes and perspectives.

Join this programme to understand what changes and skills are needed to make these changes and what your role in this should be. Thinking from a spatial perspective, this programme focuses on the multi-functionality and cross-sector nature of landscapes.

  • Develop leadership skills to mobilise resources and motivate stakeholders to achieve SDG-focused sustainable change
  • Gain critical insights and develop the skills to capitalize on investors motivation to invest and the need for innovative financing in landscapes
