Most of you know that our planet is changing, and we are facing major environmental issues. Our energy use is unsustainable, we are producing waste plastic that is endangering our seas and waterways and large parts of the natural world are disappearing. We need to find sustainable solutions to these serious problems - and soon. There has never been a more important time to study the environment.
In this course, you will discover how the environment is studied and how our research at the University of York is helping to develop sustainable solutions to environmental problems.
Assessments (and subsequent certificates) are optional and carry a fee, with the exception of people with a York username for whom they are free.
