Creating sustainable societies depends on fostering social change.
Coordinator: Dr Maurizio Toscano
The creation of sustainable societies depends on fostering social change, whether through education, organisational and policy change or changes or individual behaviour.
The Education specialisation develops knowledge and skills in education and change processes, enabling graduates to become agents of change within their organisations, communities and institutions, and to foster these skills in others.
Students will develop knowledge of historical, philosophical, socio-cultural, and psychological influences on environmental decision making and action.
