Sustainability and New Zealand

72194

Since the World Commission on Environment and Development released its 1987 report, Our Common Future, the concept of sustainable development has gained increasing currency as an approach to integrating the economic, environmental and social aspects of development. This course is designed to provide you with an understanding of sustainable development and its application to New Zealand. You will explore the concept of sustainable development in depth and analyse the impact of production and consumption patterns on New Zealand’s environment. You will also critically evaluate responses to issues surrounding unsustainable patterns of resource use.
