This program brings together people with similar questions to find a way forward in the ambiguity of sustainability. Problems are articulated as projects. By working together on similar projects - for example, in the areas of water usage, energy, food, liveable cities, waste management, climate management or risk management - the programs explore the complexities of sustainability problems with people who have similar interests but come from a range of discipline backgrounds, and provide opportunity for action learning in each student's work or personal context.
