We hope you enjoyed the free Coast Screensaver, which supported some of the series of Coast that were coproduced by The Open University and the BBC.

All journeys, though, have a natural ending and we're afraid the end of the line has been reached for the Coast screensaver.

The service which updated the content on the screensaver has been withdrawn and, as such, we have decided to retire the screensaver.

 

For further information, take a look at our frequently asked questions which may give you the support you need.

Understanding the environment: Complexity and chaos

There is increasing recognition that the reductionist mindset that is currently dominating society, rooted in unlimited economic growth unperceptive to its social and environmental impact, cannot resolve the converging environmental, social and economic crises we now face. The primary aim of this free course, Understanding the environment: Complexity and chaos, is to encourage the shift away from reductionist and human centred thinking towards a holistic and ecological worldview.
