Take the sustainability challenge and sign up for a NOOC

September 30th, 2014

We have two online courses starting on Wednesday 8 October for all students and staff of the University of Nottingham who are interested in sustainability. You can choose from:

Sustainable and Responsible Business and

Perspectives on Sustainability

Both can be used to earn credits towards the Nottingham Advantage Award.

Sustainable & Responsible Business runs for 5 weeks (time commitment about 4 hours per week). It will explore the big issues for modern businesses, including strategies for change, positive impacts, leadership and innovation for sustainability. Students who complete this NOOC are eligible to apply for membership to the Institute of Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability (ICRS).

Perspectives on Sustainability runs for 10 weeks (time commitment about 4 hours per week). It looks at sustainability from many different angles – for example geography, engineering, business, arts and humanities. Students measure their water footprints, build a visual history of sustainability, and think about the information we need to make sustainable decisions in our own lives.

Both courses are taught entirely online and in Moodle – so you can fit them around your other commitments. You will learn alongside students and staff from our three campuses in the UK, China and Malaysia.

So take the sustainability challenge today – sign up for a NOOC!
