Two Environment and Business students working together on a project.

The common ground upon which our honours undergraduate programs in SEED are built is sustainable development.

In the Environment and Business program, sustainability is advanced in two ways. First, there is an emphasis placed on identifying, understanding, and engaging business in the realization of a sustainable future. Second, knowledge and tools traditionally associated with business (such as marketing) are applied to advance knowledge, products and behaviour related to sustainability.

The International Development program engages critically with sustainability. This means that as an INDEV student, you will get to ask what sustainability can offer in a context of unequal power and wealth. Most importantly, you will get to learn about and experience how people here and abroad mobilise to expose, confront and redress those inequalities.
