TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO SUSTAINABILITY
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.
A well thought and curated module which covers all essential aspects of sustainability. The course conduct was well designed and the examples and cases presented gave further insights.
Great course, instructor made lectures interesting. I wish when I got an answer wrong I was directed where to find the answer in the material so I could review and understand.
This course helps me to learn many things about sustainability. By this course, I am more interested in sustainable developments. I expect to learn more about this provided by Dr Johnathan Tomkin.
