Best Master Programs in Sustainability Studies in Europe 2019/2020

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Sustainability put into practice could take many different forms, effecting both the individual and the larger community. There are ecovillages and sustainable cities created just for the purpose of minimizing the use of important resources. There are also techniques, such as sustainable architecture, which help promote this ideal.

Cities and communities are the main venues of key challenges of modern times, which we have to understand and be able to solve by including citizens to enhance sustainable development and quality of life.

A smart city is a city that is based on the needs of its citizens and that uses advanced technologies to promote competitiveness, sustainable development and a better quality of life.

Due to the fact that the process of urbanization is going to intensify, the cities will have to face challenges of sustainable development at different levels: environmental, social and economic, especially in less developed countries where the urbanization level is much greater. It is essential to introduce integrative policy forms for a better quality of life of both urban and rural populations, and for a greater social inclusion.... [-]

Become a professional disaster risk management specialist

The Master of Disaster Management provides humanitarian professionals with solid interdisciplinary knowledge and skills that meet the needs of modern emergency management and disaster response.

Experience from recent major disasters, changes in the humanitarian field, the changing nature of a conflict, and climate change impact all have made it clear that a holistic approach to disasters and crisis management is needed to substantially reduce losses and deal with new challenges the current system seems ill-equipped to respond to.

A coherent and holistic approach to disaster risk management is not without challenges. The decision has to be based on a politically, economically, socially, culturally, and environmentally sustainable foundation and rooted in sound development policies. Risk reduction needs to underpin and guide decisions in Preparedness, Response and Recovery planning, and programmes. Professionals with an adequate knowledge base and the right skills are invaluable if these challenges are to be met.... [-]

The 2-year practice-oriented and transdisciplinary study course is an educational framework for designers that aim to contribute to more sustainable, resilient and fair futures — both locally and trans-locally.

Eco-Social Design is not only about more eco-efficient products and services but is striving for future-viable modes of production, consumption and life – for sustainable economies and cultures. Based on these general aims and values the design of products, spaces, processes, interactive applications and transmedia communication is understood as an integrated task. Design is understood as a catalyst of change.

With your projects, you try to approach today's issues effectively by (co-)designing concrete practices and visions for tomorrow. You are encouraged to experiment with existing and emerging practices of collaboration and co-creation. The overarching goal is to encourage a good life for all! – humans, other living beings all over the planet now and in the future.... [-]

The Course

The course aims at elaborating the future of sports cars design through the analysis of current design trends and through philosophical thinking about the profound changes that the “car product” is undergoing.

The availability of new and innovative energy sources, from solar to hydrogen, will not only create new machines but also a radical shift in the transportation paradigm. Aesthetics and use of sports cars will go through a complete rethinking and a new vision is required.

The objective of this course is to create a new design vernacular for future sports cars through a semiotic analysis of the significance of sport and its relation with the human being. At the Ferrari and Lamborghini Museums, it will be possible to examine in depth the significance of sports cars in the very context where they were first created.... [-]
