Interdisciplinary Practice

Sustainable Development affects all conceivable aspects of our civilisation. But working with sustainability requires communication and co-operation between many scientific disciplines, between society’s practices and between companies’ production skills. Interdisciplinary methods are at the core of the toolbox needed for the next centuries for natural scientists, social scientists, practitioners and students. In this course we explore interdisciplinarity in two major fields of study. One is the biogeochemical cycles of the planet where different methods in natural science are used: biologists, chemists, oceanographers, meteorologists, physicists and geologists are all involved. The other field relates to the planning of sustainable city-hinterland systems, which combines a large numbers of natural and social scientific disciplines working with engineers, geographers, biologists, sociologists, historians, economists, planners, architects and landscape architects.
