New MOOCs: Earth Economics and Sustainable Finance

Recently two new Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have been published by the EUR: Earth Economics and Principles of Sustainable Finance. These MOOCs will be used in regular EUR courses, and will also boost the university's open online education on the international platform Coursera. Follow a MOOC of Erasmus University Rotterdam and boost your studies or professional career.

Earth Economics
Do you want to know more about global policy? Have you always wondered what sustainability and economy have in common? After this MOOC, you can call yourself a true Earth-Economist!

Sustainability (environmental and related to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals), equality and heterodox (that is: non mainstream) views on the economy are important for an Earth-Economist. The MOOC pays a lot of attention to pressing problems in world governance including SDGs (income inequality, sustainability, etc.) and we have included in each weekly session a section “how to apply what you have learned to the COVID-19 crisis“.
