Very informative and detailed. Prof. Sachs covers all aspects of sustainable development in detail. Though the course was designed in 2013 hence does not cover the latest development to SDGs to date.

This course was perfect for those wanting to explore the world of development, broad enough to include all interlinked themes, with sufficient reading materials to spark one's specializing interests.

Very Interesting and helpful. It's a way to open our mind and definitely something that everyone should know about before it is too late.

In this course there is a lot of valuable information, well prepared lessons and readings. I would try to make quizzes more complicated.

Unfortunately, I am missing more normative approach, advises in sense of reduced individual consumption in terms of food and traveling.

The content is good. The delivery of lectures can be more engaging, with aid of visuals to illustrate and emphasize important concepts.
