Amazing and inspiring. Especially love the interviews at the end of each week. Very good pace and amount of information. Teacher are experts in their field. Love every minute of the lecturers!
Great course! I love how well organised it is, and how everything is (from assignments to course setup) explained. As someone who is new to the field, I found the material very accessible.

Excellent course, very interesting. Lots of different lecturers that address different aspects of climate change and sustainable development. This course is great for those who want to gain a broad introductory understanding of sustainable development with specific regard to individuals, businesses and cities. The only downside for me is that the lectures remain quite abstract, and even though many examples are mentioned, the course doesn't give you specific tools or very detailed knowledge or solutions.

This course was very beneficial to my understanding of ways to green the world's economies. The course was taught by and geared towards the Scandinavian example, but I wish there were more examples provided from different contexts around the world rather than the homogenous, wealthy, developed nations of Europe. MOOC structure was nice due to flexibility on the student's part. I enjoyed the lectures and thought the assignments were a great length/degree of difficulty!

Excellent course build up, the variaty of videos and activities work really well and its very well paced. 1 star missing would be for improvements: students reviewing the activities is terrible, someone in charge of this course should be responsible for this activities reviews and feedbacks, not the learners. Second are the video contents, they are basically people reading the Compendium, the best videos are the ones with real opinions, perspectives and knowledge.

A nice introductory course on greening the economy. I wish it would go a bit deeper in some issues.
The difficulty level was for me, just too easy. Maybe I was not the target group after all, since I have previous knowledge in the subject.
Nevertheless, for someone who is new to the subject, this is a very well strucutred and easy to follow course.

A worthwhile overview, with a lot of breadth to it. Only negative experience was the last quiz. Several questions could not be answered correctly from the readings or lectures. I had to spend a lot of time simply re-doing the quiz, changing the answers until by process of elimination, I got the correct ones.

I have better understanding for the difference in approach and willingness depending on if it is personal, community, business or government. And the different possibilities and ways to influence these questions depending on which role you have in these different groups.

This course offers material to start investigating about the world of sustainability, to help society and our planet. The interviews, readings, hints of the teacher's explanations and the required tasks make you question things and wanting to dig deeper.

A very good course. I rated 4/5 because it is just a beginner level course. You can understand the stuff if you have baisc knowledge of basic sciences, but for people like me with professional degrees it somewhat primitive or a basic course.
par Joe W•
Interesting as a first step to better understand the concepts of sustainability and greening the economy. It's however necessary to propose a second course that goes deeper in some of the key concepts.
par Melissa F•
An interesting course by the lecturers, supplemented with real life cases/interviews. Will like to learn more about the strategies for outreach and public policy. Overall, ver

Interesting concepts, interesting way of presenting them and the peer-assignement is a great way to discover knew things while review our classmates.

This programme offers a great introduction and background to the thinking on the Green economy, as well as very useful examples from Scandinavia.

A great gathering of like minded people sharing great local developments in the Greening global economy.

I liked this course a lot, though sometimes the videos were kind of slow and my attention got disperse.

Un tanto básica pero sirve. Falta mejorar los materiales audiovisuales.

Interesting. Would like to see more focus on national policies.

Good course, but could have been more in-depth
par Eloïse G•
A lot of examples and really good lectures.
par Geoffrey S•
Good course with varied content and I very much liked the way it was build up (individual, business, cities, nations). Reason why I rated it 3 stars (only) is that the course was too easy - however I'm a sustainability professional. Maybe the word "introduction" can be taken into the title - as the course would serve as a good intro-course for practical application of sustainability.

The course is interesting but a bit outdated. Some links to material don't work anymore and the articles where sometimes from 2006. I think there must be more contemporary articles with new insights.
par Ky T•
Informative and provide some great ideas and insights.

Take so long mainly because of "assignment locked" problem. And the main cause of this problem (according to their words) is being their in summer holiday. But for me, it calls definitely "irresponsibility". So, 2 stars is enough for just content of the course.
