What You Will Learn
First off, we will deliver a module that helps you to understand the principles of sustainability; this involves developing a working knowledge of environmental resource management and how to ensure tomorrow’s world is more plentiful than today’s. We will also look at how societal goals and economic models can impact our ability to achieve sustainable development goals. And then most importantly we will give you the skills and resources needed for driving this change as a sustainability professional.
Alongside this module you will be developing and performing on your own extended research project in the environment and sustainability sector. This is an opportunity to develop all the individual investigative skills of a scientist and to access our extensive phonebook at Cornwall college connecting you to organisations involved in changing the world. Anything and everything from carbon capture and storage techniques, sustainable transport systems, flood mitigation, sewage treatment and much, much more could be researched here.
