  • Pavneet Chawla India This is very nice to gain knowledge in Sustainable development. The modules cover very useful information about the Energy needs, demand and method of generation. But It will be fantastic if module give information about smart energy consumption and smart building / cities. I think this is very important thing which is missed in it. 2014-11-16 09:11:23

  • Mario Cudiamat Philippines This course is an answer to our nowadays concerns about the environment and conservation. SD features the three pillars of development framework: socio-cultural and political, ecological integrity and economic dimension. It generally looks at a holistic perspective of development. I already took this field in my PhD and I think this will contribute to my current knowledge about it. And of course, thanks to ALISON because our global goal in merging or intertwining the concept of environment and development is realized through this curricular offerings. 2014-09-28 02:09:37
