LEARN TO MANAGE SOCIO-TECHNICAL CHANGE PROCESSES IN THE ENVIRONMENT, ENERGY AND WATER DOMAINS.
Making the world more resilient and sustainable is an urgent, yet complex task. Our global community is struggling with climate change, pollution and degradation of ecosystems, and increasing economic and social inequality. What does it take to organise, manage, and lead socio-technical change towards solving these global challenges? How can we keep our economy viable without exceeding the carrying capacity of ecosystems and infrastructures? That’s what the Master’s in Environmental & Energy Management (MEEM) is all about.
This one-year, English-taught Master’s, offered in Leeuwarden, will help you become a change agent at the interface between social, technological, and ecological systems.
