“A successful sustainable development agenda requires partnerships between governments, the private sector and civil society. These inclusive partnerships built upon principles and values, a shared vision, and shared goals that place people and the planet at the centre, are needed at the global, regional, national and local level.”

- Goal 17 - Revitalize the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development, UN Sustainable Development Goals

This programme develops the future generation of sustainability leaders and innovators who have the passion and skills to lead environmental partnerships and projects that deliver on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Sustainable development - the balancing of environmental, economic and social goals - is the greatest challenge facing the planet today. As stated in the UN Sustainable Development Goals, new and innovative forms of collaboration and partnership are needed to bring together societal, business and scientific interests to address the challenge of sustainable development.

This programmes is designed to address this need by training environmental professionals who can build effective partnerships across civil society, business and government to deliver sustainable development.

You will be taught by experts in a range of fields, including energy transitions, coastal and marine management, land management, tourism and rural communities. You will develop practical employment ready skills such as grant preparation, policy development, working with communities, pitching, project evaluation and leadership.  

As part of the programme, students undertake a Partnership Project, an independent and original piece of work that demonstrates advanced specialist knowledge in an approved aspect of environmental partnership management, carried out in collaboration with a supporting partner organisation/agency, including for example, Scottish or UK Government Departments and Agencies, Local Councils, Community Groups, Environmental Partnerships and Companies.

Students also have the opportunity to engage with government, civil society and industry and we have developed close relationships through research and teaching with key organisations, including Marine Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage, UK Government Defra, Zero Waste Scotland, Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire Council and a range of local sustainability partnerships.
