Create sustainable environmental policies and shape tomorrow’s green communities

Professionals working with Green Infrastructure (GI) come from all sorts of backgrounds; ecology, economy, urban planning, and many others. To be effective in creating resilient places and working with the environment to combat climate change and biodiversity loss, they need to draw on all these areas. That’s exactly what this five-week course allows you to do.

Get to grips with green infrastructure and ecosystem services

The course begins with an introduction to green infrastructure and ecosystem services, including how these concepts relate to each other and their importance for effective environmental policy.

You’ll also get to reflect on the challenges GI and ecosystem services can help solve and learn to identify practical online tools for GI and ecosystem service management.

Make informed decisions and develop solutions for sustainability in rural and urban areas

Discover how to maximise benefits for people and nature, overcome governance issues, manage GI networks, collaborate with others to unlock funding, and ultimately make key decisions that lead to more sustainable living and more resilient places.
