This module supports Keele’s commitment to helping students understand sustainability and empower them to make informed decisions supporting environmental integrity. We are seeing an increase in the demand for scientists who can deliver innovative solutions to the challenges facing society today. As a result, this module has been designed to help students understand how their chosen scientific discipline underpins the sustainable development goals, which are the "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all". Students will develop a range of scientific skills and techniques and competencies which they can apply in their degree and chosen profession.
