Great way to start understanding about sustainable development!

I think it would be smart to add other languages to the subtitles, many people in my country is really interested but English can be a barrier for them.

A very well organized and taught mooc lectured by someone with enormous experience in the area, a must do to everyone involved in the development of human societies.

Slightly outdated.

Great course! All subjects are well explained and Professor Sachs makes the videos very interesting and enjoyable to watch.
