Course Description

Have you ever asked yourself what role land plays in front of demographic change, globalization or climate change?

Did you ever consider the connectivity between poverty and land access or changing land values? If you want to delve more deeply into these complex and fascinating issues, take part in our MOOC course, “Introduction Land Management.”

As a result, experts in sustainable land management are desperately needed.
