In today’s world, it is important for everyone to realize what role they play when it comes to tackling global challenges. Surprisingly, Gen Z is at the forefront of this matter. They are more concerned about Sustainability, Global Warming and Climate Change than any other generation and are trying their very best to bring about change. The MSc course in Transformative Change for Sustainable Development, offered by the Natural Resources Institute (NRI), University of Greenwich provides a timely response to these pressing, global challenges. The MSc program will provide students with an in-depth understanding of Development Studies theory and the myriad of valuable lessons from development practice. Drawing on carefully selected examples from a variety of domains (economic, environmental, social, and institutional), sectors (agri-food, energy, education, and financial services) and contexts (developing and developed countries), students will gain an in-depth understanding of innovative transformative initiatives and of whether and why they succeeded or failed.
Speaking about the course and its contemporary importance, Mr Suneet Singh Kochar, CEO of Fateh Education said, “The MSc program Transformative Change for Sustainable Development helps students develop the capacity to critically discuss, analyse, and evaluate the harsh reality of our environment and sustainable goals. Since the course is crafted keeping SDGs in mind, I believe students will develop some hands-on skills to address the global issues we are facing currently. The course tends to enhance the students’ analytical, communication, networking and community-engagement skills, some qualities which are a MUST especially when you are training Changemakers of the future.”
According to Prof Vegard Iversen at NRI, “We know a great deal about what the world’s sustainable development challenges are, know reasonably well what needs to change for these challenges to be overcome but know much less about how to make these changes happen. Who can lead such changes? What skills and abilities do they need? What strategies can lead to successful transformative changes? Unlike ours, very few MSc courses on sustainable development pay attention to these questions”.
