You will explore an environmental case study, for example creating a scenario for a circular economy in 2050. In groups you will analyze the problem, its solutions and the factors that obstruct these solutions. This course gives ownership to the students in structuring the course and stimulates creative thinking and dealing with complex issues.

You will be trained in scenario techniques at the start of the course, after which you will further investigate a sustainability challenge. In addition, you will go on field trips and you and your fellow students will take part in a debate with experts in the field. The area study will enable you to test the theories you have learned in class in practical situations.
