Our societies are currently facing critical environmental challenges, e.g. climate change and biodiversity decline. The severity of these growing challenges calls for urgent solutions. With an MSc degree in Environmental and Natural Resource Economics at the University of Copenhagen, you can be part of the solution.


The Environmental and Natural Resource Economics programme at the University of Copenhagen focuses on solving environmental challenges and securing a green transition towards thriving societies that are both environmentally and economically sustainable.
