The Master in Sustainable Development aims to train students to become the agents of change that will imagine, trigger and implement the sustainability transition of the 21st century. Its strength is its interdisciplinary character, bridging societal and ecological sustainability challenges. The programme offers a common interdisciplinary core and two specialisation tracks: “Space & Society” and “Ecology”.
