About this course

This course on SDG 15 – Life on Land allows you develop a holistic and global understanding of the challenges we face in the areas of protecting, restoring and promoting sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably managing forests, combating desertification, and halting and reversing land degradation and halting biodiversity loss. In a globalizing world, our students need to think critically, globally and in terms of whole systems. This course supports Ubiquity’s mission in building those skills.
