Best Course Studies in Natural Sciences 2017. Global climate change is mainly caused by emissions arising from our daily energy use. “Think globally, act locally” is necessary to trigger urgent and drastic changes. Energy use and solutions are local, but markets and technologies are global. Finding feasible pathways to transform energy systems poses huge challenges for all of us. - On the one hand, drastic change requires fresh ideas, new ways of approaching problems and the discovery of unexplored paths. - On the other hand the solid laws of physics and eternal endeavours of human beings constrain freedom of action. The Postgraduate of Energy and Climate is innovative. The lectures focus on energy for the future: energy efficiency and renewable energy are studied from the energy end-use and services perspective. But the future is also uncertain: debated policy topics are covered by two lecturers, diverging in analysis and proposed solutions. The programme furthermore focuses on our common future: it invites a broad audience, from non-technical scholars to certified engineers, who are all eager to learn about new perspectives and approaches for addressing energy and climate issues.

Best Course Studies in Natural Sciences 2017. A new Postgraduate Diploma programme in Endangered Species Recovery is currently being developed by DICE that will capitalise on its long-standing links with the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust (Durrell) and the Mauritius Wildlife Foundation (MWF). Students registered on this University of Kent diploma will be based entirely on the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean where they will be immersed within a world-renowned species and habitat restoration programme, spear-headed by MWF in collaboration with Durrell. This exciting and novel approach to postgraduate training will enable students to learn cutting-edge conservation techniques and gain world-class hands-on experience in the field. Distinctive Features This unique programme, which will combine an academic qualification with intensive in situ fieldwork experience on Mauritius, will be administered as one of DICEs portfolio of postgraduate programmes in conservation science and management within the School of Anthropology and Conservation. Durrell is one of the foremost species conservation organisations in the world, having recovered many endangered species from critically low numbers through intensive, hands-on species management. Durrell therefore compliments DICE’s academic credentials with its evidence-based species recovery efforts on the ground. Both DICE and Durrell have a long-term partnership in conservation research and training with MWF, the organisation which has successfully led the recovery efforts for a large number of threatened endemic species. MWF’s work has already saved a minimum of five endemic species from extinction, as well as pioneering ecosystem recovery techniques for restoring whole-island ecosystems. Students on this new... [-]
