Review and reflect

Reflect and share what you have learnt about sustainability and development.

Congratulations on completing Week 2.

This week we investigated past events contributing to the environmental issues of today and explored worldviews and visions of the future.

We examined the role of technology and progress towards sustainable development.

We used a case study of agriculture to critically analyse SDG 9 and then considered SDG 8, with a focus on the impact of technology on future work roles.


You have now reached the end of this open course on sustainability and development. In the course, we have asked the question what is the relationship between people and the environment, particularly the negative impact of human activity on the planet, why this is important, and what we are trying to do about it?

It’s been a rich conversation with so many contributors from around the globe. Thank you for your participation and contribution.
