3. Course contents *

The course consists of lectures and seminars. The lectures provide supporting knowledge regarding the environment and environmental policies and related topics depending on the case discussed. Visiting lecturers from various disciplines and social angles will be attracted. Environmental safety issues will  be looked at from a broad perspective and translated into  real cases. On the basis of this knowledge, the students will work out an assignment in group,. This assignment involves a fictive case set up by the students under the supervision of the lecturers. On the basis of a real example, students are assisted in beginning their assignment. Each group will use a different social perspective to deal with the case (e.g. company, neighbour, health inspection, environmental inspection, environmental movement, council, …).
