title Making environmental decisions
description <div><p>Many decisions and actions, both individual and collective, affect our environment; yet economic and political considerations often dominate. Defining environment to include biophysical, social, political, economic and other factors, this online module uses a systems framework to integrate environment with other elements when making environmental decisions in complex situations. You will explore a contemporary case of environmental decision making concerning fracking, as well as further examples from different parts of the world around water, energy, agriculture, forestry and climate change. You will also be able to consider an environmental decision-making situation of your own choosing, through the development of a project.</p></div>
