This free course began by approaching environmental management as a way of thinking about and managing changing human–environment relationships in their many different arenas and contexts, and drawing on systems ideas to explore how those relationships are understood and managed over time.

It firstly challenged the ways that you may think about environment and management and then explored different ways of thinking about organisations including as a system, why a focus on organisations is key to environmental management and some of the historical aspects of environmental management in relation to organisations. You have also had an opportunity to think about the links between an organisation and its environment, and some aspects of voluntary and compulsory approaches to environmental management.
