A new year, a more sustainable city?! Students of this year’s final course of the Minor Sustainable Development, provided by the Institute of Environmental Sciences (CML) at Leiden University, will again be working with the Leiden City Council to help them further develop their Sustainability ambitions. Half the class will this year also contribute to a further development of the Sustainability goals of the City Council of The Hague. In groups they will act as consultancy agencies and work with the councils as their client on current and relevant sustainability challenges.
As part of this course, students will be investigating the opportunities for the cities of Leiden and The Hague with respect to energy transition, circular economy and climate adaptation. In groups (acting as consultancy agencies, with the Council as their client), they will investigate current hot-topic questions of the council within these themes. They will present their results at the end of January. As part of the course, the students will also be writing posts to this blog detailing ideas and initiatives from elsewhere as inspiration for what may be done in Leiden/The Hague within their themes.
We look forward to reading some exciting ideas over the next few weeks!
