Sustainable Futures Sustainable Futures is an online course that undergraduates can take along with their degree subjects, but is also open to anyone, whether you are studying at Bristol University or not. Belong spoke to two of the course’s teachers, Eleni Michalopoulou, and Dr. Aisling Tierney about what they teach on the course and what students can hope to get from it. One of the first things students learn about on the course is the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the sustainability challenges facing the modern world. Students also learn how they can contribute to making a sustainable future. Students will look at how people are trying to make a difference to sustainability on a local, regional and international level. They will examine case studies, which show how this is happening, such as the acute problem of homelessness in Bristol and the problem of microplastics and global greenhouse gas emissions.
