Dr Camaren Peter
Master Class: Leveraging Sustainability Innovations
R 1500 (This is a non-credit bearing course)
The sustainability agenda is here to stay. Renewable energies, green technologies, permaculture and agro-ecological practises, eco-tourism, cleaner production, climate change mitigation and adaptation, urban sustainability and sustainable human settlements are all emerging areas of practice within this new sector. This introductory course is designed to expose mid-to-high level executives in the public and private sectors to the field of sustainability and the key innovations that are unfolding in this growing sector. It will help unlock their ability to work with sustainability by introducing them to a variety of case studies in sustainability innovations, and by assisting them to develop project and programme-level sustainability proposals in their respective organisational contexts and areas of work.
