"Environmental Issues, Monitoring, & Assessment is a fantastic course that I would highly recommend to anyone studying at UQ. The environmental issues discussed during the course are incredibly interesting and affect everyone that lives on Earth. It becomes unmistakably clear how it is of the utmost importance to understand our interaction with the world around us and to approach living comfortably within the means of nature. Discussing the issues presented such as global warming, population, and sustainability, further ignited my curiosity and has continued to compel me to use my degree to contribute to the world at large."
