Lectures give one a good perspective on different issues. Some links mentioned in readings don't work. A good course to get a sense of major global challenges.
useful course I loved that I can review my colleagues work and rate them I learned from that
What a meaningful course. It changed my view, showed me that even though it may be small changes that it makes a difference.
Very well presented. Excellent content. Practical. I learned a lot.
