This is a programme that allows you to build important relationships and bridge the gap that prevents good practice from happening to manage environmental concerns first and foremost. You work with other disciplines such as, ecologists, environmental scientists, planners, engineers, charities, public sector organisations, associations, national parks, government and local government, and all interested parties to improve use of natural resources and bring people together to find the best ways of managing the environment.

You learn about the balance required to achieve economic, social and environmental goals and apply the practice of governance, well managed partnerships, improvements and challenges of planning, leadership and processes that advance challenges we all face such as climate change, energy production, biodiversity loss, food production within challenging environments and management, clean water and more.

The increase in environmental regulation and concerns globally about climate change, distinction of species, deforestation, loss of green belt and more has lead to an increased focus about how best to manage environmental issues longer term. Many organisations across all sectors have found successful collaborations and partnerships have not only helped them manage risk but improve their learning's within environmental management to improve learnings in their own discipline as a result. As population increases there is more demand on planning to provide an effective level of environmental understanding and knowledge. Food production now has to be carefully managed due to climatic and weather challenges to ensure we create the best scenarios for sustainability. Often the relationship between planning and environment has been fractious due to economic benefit arguments or other planning benefits; however the challenges of changes to the environment which have been highly publicised more recently mean that we need to innovate and work together for our future.

The degree combines multiple disciplines to give you a contemporary environmental context of development from a scientific and social perspective with practical tools to inform decision making looking at all important aspects such as planning, economics, environment, research, governance and partnership working.
