TOP REVIEWS FROM THE AGE OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
Loved every part of this course. Really provided a good insight towards sustainable development. Prof Sachs is really great and gives a lot of useful information during the lecture videos.
There is some great material in here (especially detailing the more hopeful aspects of sustainable development). The only bad part was that some of the links need updating in the quizzes.
I am working in low middle income country as an expat environmental engineer. This course has helped me to understand relations between institutions and set up better relations with them.
This course have been very informative, engaging, practical and utmost importance for our future survival. I learnt a lot of important concepts regarding sustainability of our human race.
