It's a comprehensive course covering a wide range of topics related to economic development from its history to socioeconomic, geopolitical issues that threaten the future of our planet. Professor Sachs has provided an in-depth analysis of the situation and insight into measures and actions to cope with climate change and biodiversity... It's a course highly recommended for politicians, policy makers in urban and rural designs and anyone who has an interest in protecting our environment and who cares for our future generations.

Jeffrey Sachs is incredibly knowledgable and, as a bonus, very pleasant to listen to. This course was incredibly interesting and informative and provided me with a fantastic overview of the way the world has been and is being shaped, and where it is headed. This course included some of the most interesting graphs I have ever seen, exceptionally interesting.

I have a background in sustainable development and still found this course informative and fascinating. This course is full of facts that are equally mind-boggling and illuminating. This course covers the basics of sustainable development, whilst still providing enough depth to understand the intricate technical and political difficulties facing sustainable development.
