The Monash Water for Liveability Centre will run a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on one of the major challenges facing our planet: how to develop resilient and liveable cities for the future.
The course, Water for Liveable and Resilient Cities, starting on 2 March 2015, will be delivered through FutureLearn and is intended for those with an interest in water and sustainable cities. It's free and no previous experience or knowledge is required.
Students will have the opportunity to explore the concept of water sensitive cities – how cities can be designed with water in mind to ensure they are liveable and resilient in the face of rapid urbanisation and climate change impacts.
Students will hear from world-renowned researchers and practitioners about what is needed to deliver water sensitive cities. The course will explore leading-edge research from the environmental, social, economic, political and engineering disciplines.
