Online Course


E-Learning: Ecological Economics from the Bottom-Up

Accessed via the Moodle in the project website, 25 students from across the globe took part in this interactive course from April-July 2010, made up of lectures featuring slides and audio, case study readings, a glossary of ecological economics terms and other resources (the case studies and glossary are now available as a single resource, download the CEECEC Handbook here), online discussion forums and assignments. Students came from largely NGO, but also university and public/private sector backgrounds and offered overwhelmingly positive feedback on their course experience, with of course some welcome suggestions for improvement.

  1. Dear CEECEC

    Through your course I have found concepts of ecological economics both motivating as well as invaluable in humanities strive towards sustainable development. Tools and methods we were introduced to opened a new perspective on issues surrounding us, and lead us to new, until now obscure solutions.
    CEECEC course was something I would recommend everybody with interest in ecological economics to take part in. With knowledge gathered one can recognize potential issues that could lead to unsustainable development and possible ecological problems and in that way can react in proper period of time which will as a result have more possibility in positive outcome of certain issue. By presenting themes and issues through case studies from all over the world one could really easily understand importance and effective benefit of using different tools and methods introduced in diverse situations.

  2. “Brilliant course for people working in NGOs to understand basic concepts of Ecological Economics. The concepts introduced through elaborate case studies accompanied by interactive discussions and lectures illustrate the dimensions for use. I found the course very useful.”

  3. “Applying an interactive approach, this course has helped me to understand better ecological economics methods and the concept of sustainable development. It was very useful and good, so, I would like to recommend this course to all those who are working in NGO or those who are interesting to enrich their knowledge on sustainable environmental management.”
