About this Unit
This Unit examines environmental management policy and its practice in a variety of settings. In terms of policy, the unit begins with a brief overview of the policy principles associated with the concept of ‘sustainable development’. In terms of management practice students are invited to select a vocationally relevant change strategy from a range introduced in the study materials. These include; National and Local Planning, ISO 140000, and Healthy Settings. The implications of the use of one of these strategies (or some agreed alternative) in their workplace/community is addressed in the context of change management, organisational learning, and policy development.
