Sustainability refers to the ability of a system to operate continuously, without using up resources, in a viable, need-fulfilling manner.
Sustainable Management, Policy and Governance is a discipline concerned with enforcing Management, Policy making and Governance in a sustainable way, for a sustainable human society, from all perspectives: environment, economy, industry, business, agriculture, etc.
Changing the Management, Policy making and Governance from wasteful to sustainable requires first of all changing the mind-set of the people active in these fields, that is why the best starting point is educating young people in this mind-set and towards this change. This discipline aims at educating professionals, which will later become involved in Management, Policy Making and Governance, to work in a sustainable manner by default. They will be a source of expertise and advisory services for the government, private sector, and non-governmental initiatives supporting the implementation of sustainable environment and development practices. The need for such experts is more and more stringent every day and a student of this field would have a wide array of professional opportunities in nowadays’ society.

Transport is a major cause of environmental impact. Whether it is air pollution, noise, encroachment on the green belt or climate change, it is widely accepted that further expansion of transport must be balanced against the environmental damage. This programme takes a detailed look at this relationship, and equips students with practical approaches to environmentally sound transport planning. Students study the core principles of transport planning and then apply these to the environmental issues.
