Voor wie is de opleiding bedoeld?

(For you?)
The CPP Sustainability is a practice-oriented program at an academic level. If you are looking for a mix between practice and theory and would like to put what you have learned into practice, this is the program for you.
To achieve sustainable development, solving and preventing environmental problems, such as climate change, marine litter pollution, air pollution or loss of biodiversity is key. Environmental problems are not individual but societal issues, and involve discussions about the causes and possible suitable solutions. Within this context, environmental principles will enable you to diagnose and analyze environmental problems and find appropriate solutions. Scientific knowledge on the state of, and impact on, the environment as well as societal drivers and responses are essential to understand the complexity of environmental issues. After following this course you will have insight in the different aspects of environmental problems. This will help you find sustainable solutions and will give you insight in how to deal with uncertainties and risks. You will be able to apply your insights to the sustainable development contribution of your own organization.
