Live Online Workshops

Our open online course Sustainable Futures looks at how trade and the things we buy are linked to environmental and social degradation and how we can transition to a green economy and a sustainable future.

Our online courses allow students to participate live without travelling to a physical classroom space. Participants can learn and be involved from the relaxed environment of home.

These workshops are for

Everyone. Students, individuals, teams, groups and organisations, anyone interested in the green transition, current legislation, the local and international context and how we move to a sustainable future.
