Course Summary

We face many sustainability challenges today, and this two-week series of workshops is designed to equip students with some of the skills required to tackle some of them. Sustainability is a multidisciplinary field, and these skills are transferable across many disciplines. The workshops will cover the foundations of basic research and scientific methodology, which will then develop into technical software skills by learning how to map data using QGIS.

During the latter half of the workshops you will be given the opportunity to apply your newly acquired skills. In groups, you will identify a Sustainability Challenge and come up with a solution to present to the class.
