Sustainable and Inclusive Landscapes Professional Certificate

We’re facing a number of complex and interrelated problems such as rising food prices, economic downturn, climate change, and increased competition on the use of natural resources.
Integrated landscape approaches have the power to help us solve these problems. They offer new insights and opportunities for sustainable development but demand new skills and knowledge.
To achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), diverse landscape stakeholders need to find a common ground and learn to understand plural and complex landscape issues, processes and perspectives.
Join this programme to understand what changes and skills are needed to make these changes and what your role in this should be. Thinking from a spatial perspective, this programme focuses on the multi-functionality and cross-sector nature of landscapes.
In this Professional Certificate Programme you will learn about four major elements in landscape thinking:
Integrated Landscape Finance
Landscape Governance
Landscape Leadership
Climate change and climate action
The programme consists of online courses in which you will learn that the application of landscape approaches to address complex developmental and environmental challenges requires a shift in mind-set, perspective and skillset.
The courses in this programme have been developed to enhance your ability to think beyond the sector and in a more integrated and transformative manner. The courses will equip you with the skills and tools needed to transform your landscapes and teach you how to integrate the necessary climate action. Not only will you be able to analyse, you will learn how to bring knowledge into action in order to promote climate smart landscapes on a local scale and/or across the world.
