The International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics (IIIEE) at Lund University is launching a new Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) in the Greening the Economy series in January.

How can we shape urban development towards sustainable and prosperous futures? A new open online course will explore sustainable cities as engines for greening the economy and analyse how to best shape urban development towards sustainable and prosperous futures.

The course will connect the key trends of urbanization, decarbonisation and sustainability, while examining visions, experiments and innovations in urban areas.

During the course you will look at practices, such as what is happening in cities at present, and opportunities, for example what are the possibilities for cities going forwards into the future. The course will bring together a collection of diverse short films and key short readings on sustainable cities as well as interactive forums and a practical assignment to create an online learning community. The course will utilize films and reports on sustainable cities by the World Wide Fund for Nature, the Economist Intelligence Unit and other ongoing research projects. The MOOC starts 18 January.
