Minor Urban Environmental Management
More than half of the world population now lives in urban centres around the world. Securing a safe and healthy urban environment is becoming increasingly important, but at the same time, cities are major nods in the global networks of consumption and production responsible for utilising the biggest shares of the world’s fossils and natural resources.
The BSc Minor Urban Environmental Management introduces the core disciplines (Technology, Policy, Land Use Planning) and issues of Urban Environmental Management to BSc students of various disciplines from within and outside Wageningen University.
The scope of the minor is limited to the ‘grey’ area of environmental management: the management of environmental flow streams like water, waste and energy in and between cities and industries; the technologies and infrastructures accommodating these flows; the stakeholders using, regulating and managing the flows; and urban spatial planning.
