15 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: This module will investigate the relationships, processes, and flows of energy, material, and information, which are fundamental for knowing where and how to intervene to create positive outcomes. This will include exploration of the science of ecology to investigate the macro-scale relationships between organisms and their environment. The human dimensions at this scale will be considered through the understanding of various constructed infrastructures and networks. The module will explore ways to address current challenges including holistic and hybrid understanding, where constructed infrastructure can be reconsidered to facilitate healthier ecological processes and where the natural world is seen as a fundamental set of 'green-infrastructures', the proper functioning of which underpins the success of all species, including our own.
