Overview

Managing sustainability is one of the most challenging and rapidly growing areas in both the public and private sectors. With increasing recognition of the impact of a world living beyond its means, the commitment to sustainable development to meet the needs of present generations without jeopardising those of the future has never been more apparent.

The programme fosters critical thinking and promotes the use of initiative for problem solving and decision-making in sustainable development.

Leadership For Sustainable Development Highlights

Student Experience

The Leadership for Sustainable Development programme at Queen's University Belfast of three eight-week placements in the NGO, governance and business and finance sectors can be carried out locally or internationally. 

These aim to help students become sustainable development 'champions' who can identify and address problems of sustainability in innovative ways and further mainstream sustainable development across all sectors and at all levels. 

The year-long group project requires several students to work with an organisation of their choice to explore sustainable solutions to a specific problem.

Programme Structure

  • Students will be introduced to leadership and sustainable development over three taught modules to help gain an overview of the principles and values of sustainable development, and why it is important.
