Program description: 

When working practically with natural resource management and sustainable development you also work with people and organisations. How can we manage different interests and goals that sometimes lead to unexpected consequenses? In working life, social interaction is the key and this practice-oriented programme provides training in working with complex situations. Projects in natural resource management and sustainable development often fail. One reason is that people, with their different perspectives and interests, are not taken into account. The Environmental Communication programme offers students a theoretical and practical training in organising collective action and facilitating communication in natural resource management and environmental issues. Environmental communication focuses on the interaction people-to-people as well as people-nature.
