How to make sustainable choices on a global scale?

Global socio-ecological problems call for multidisciplinary solutions that transcend the usual boundaries of science and decision-making.

You can choose from two study tracks: the Environmental Change study track in natural sciences and the Global Sustainability study track in social sciences. You can also study topics like food and sustainability, climate studies, indigenous stud­ies, urban studies, global land use or Baltic sea stud­ies.
