Environmental Science and Sustainability: Greening the Economy – Sustainable Zone/Cities

Course Overview

How can we shape our urban development towards sustainable and prosperous futures?
This course explores sustainable cities as engines for greening the economy in Malaysia and around the world. We place cities in the context of sustainable urban transformation and climate change. We connect the key trends of urbanization, decarbonisation and sustainability. We examine how visions, experiments and innovations can transform urban areas. And we look at practices (what is happening in cities at present) and opportunities (what are the possibilities for cities going forwards into the future).

The course is supported by National Human Health Tech & Wealth Ecosystem Chamber of Commerce (NHC) who work with creating sustainable cities.

The course features researchers, practitioners and entrepreneurs from a range organisations, to provide simple and comfortable solutions without deliberate changes, called “Respiratory Therapy”.
