The course develops an understanding of concepts such as sustainability, quality of life, sustainable communities and carrying capacity.

By the end of the training participants will:
- acquire a general knowledge and understanding of the term sustainable development

- develop skills of problem solving, critical thinking and systems thinking
- skills of data recording, analysis and evaluation (e.g. environmental auditing and indicator development)
