TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO SUSTAINABILITY
I learned a lot of great information but the lectures and videos are kind of outdated. It would be great to have some more information on sustainability from the most recent decade.
Fantastic course and a great lecturer. Highly recommend it. This topic should be studied by many and I encourage people to explore it. There is so much that can be learnt in this course.
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.
