TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO SUSTAINABILITY
The course was comprehensive and presents deep insights to all concepts on sustainability. Thi s course really helped me in understanding the basics of sustainability in a lucid manner.
Well organized, video lectures help with understanding the readings, and assessments are reasonable. I loved the flexibility of working on it when I could while still working full time.
A very good course to have basic understanding of sustainable development. A learner from different background like me would find it much helpful in exploring a new field of interest.
Brilliant! Really brought alot of issues to hand I had no idea about, the lectures are easy to understand and clear! I've kept alot of the info to look back on I can't recommend enough!
