You’ll explore some of the key dimensions of science, politics and society, working towards creating and leading positive change. This course has a particular focus on responding to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and with this in mind, highlights the importance of promoting just, peaceful and inclusive societies, reducing poverty and hunger, ensuring health and wellbeing, achieving gender and racial equality, delivering a net zero future, bringing dignity to work, and enabling sustainable futures through decisive action on climate change.
