  • Objectives
    We aim to provide students with an interdisciplinary knowledge of the potential impacts of global warming and climate change across a variety of key areas, including public health, business and economics, national and international policy and technological development, underpinned by a critical understanding of the concept of sustainability as applied to resource and energy use. In so doing, we aim to meet the changing needs of society by generating graduates able to tackle the challenges presented by climate change, thus preparing them for careers that will likely span the transition to a post-carbon economy.

    Global warming is a pressing and universal environmental issue, which is likely to affect essentially all arenas of human activity. This will create demand for professionals with the knowledge and understanding of how to mitigate our impact on the atmosphere and how to adapt to climate change. These professionals will be needed in a wide variety of organisations in public, private and charitable sectors; in energy, transport, mining, heavy and light industrial, service and retailing, financial, marketing and insurance. A recent one-day conference on global climate change organised by The Guardian featured presentations from central government (MPs, the Mayor of London, UK Govts chief scientific advisor) and local government (Merton Borough Council), NGOs (WWF, FoE), and from Shell, Boots, HSBC, Barclays, Cooperative Group, Berkely Homes, National Express Group, BAA, Marks and Spencer, Tesco, Vodafone and BskyB. These are among the myriad of target employers for graduates of the proposed program.
