Multi-Media Projects based on the Course 'Development, Environment and Natural Resources'
During the Academic Course 2016-17 and within the framework of the course Development, Environment and Natural Resources, IBEI Associated Professor Esteve Corbera, Principal Investigator at the Institute of Environmental Science and Technology (ICTA-UAB), gave students the assignment of producing either a blog entry or an audiovisual piece that would inform a broad, non-academic audience about the contents of one article (or more) provided in the course syllabus.
