Cleaning up the large number of groundwater contamination sites is a significant and complex environmental challenge. The environmental industry is continuously looking for remediation methods that are both effective and cost-efficient. Over the past 10 years there have been amazing, important developments in our understanding of key attenuation processes and technologies for evaluating natural attenuation processes, and a changing institutional perspective on when and where Monitored Natural Attenuation (MNA) may be applied.

A quantitative introduction to the energy system and its environmental impacts. Humanity faces an immense challenge: providing abundant energy to everyone without wrecking the planet. If we want a high-energy future while protecting the natural world for our children, we must consider the environmental consequences of energy production and use. But money matters too: energy solutions that ignore economic costs are not realistic—particularly in a world where billions of people currently can’t afford access to basic energy services. How can we proceed?

Nous utilisons une multitude de produits, de biens et de services dans notre vie quotidienne et professionnelle. Pour faire face à une demande croissante en ressources (minerais, énergie) et pour répondre aux grands enjeux environnementaux tels que le changement climatique, il est possible de concevoir des produits plus respectueux de l’environnement. Ce MOOC d’introduction à l’éco-conception vous propose de découvrir comment réduire les impacts sur l’environnement des produits (biens ou services) tout en conservant leurs qualités et leurs performances intrinsèques. Les participants pourront acquérir les bases théoriques de l’éco-conception et apprendre à manipuler quelques outils simples pour évaluer les impacts sur l’environnement d’un produit et l’améliorer.

Each part of the world faces specific vulnerabilities to climate change and has different opportunities to mitigate the effects and build resilience in the 21st century. With the Paris Agreement at COP 21, the global community has signaled its intent to act. Indeed, without climate action, decades of development progress are threatened, meaning that we are at a ‘make it or break it’ point in time. This course presents the most recent scientific evidence, explains the different regional impacts and divulge climate action strategies, and some opportunities for you to take action on climate change.
