This is the capstone course for the Bachelor of Environmental Policy and Management. The world is facing increasing environmental challenges, including biodiversity loss, desertification, fisheries depletion, air and other forms of pollution and of course climate change. A wide range and suite of management and policies are needed to address them. This course reintroduces students to the key issues and then outlines a wide range of policies and environmental management frameworks. The course covers technical, statutory, social, and political policies. Using a field trip and a mini internship, the course focuses on building student skills so they are work ready and able to use their knowledge to apply the most appropriate environmental management policy or framework.
