The CHE delivered an acclaimed Masters course and modular short courses until 2010. The Centre is currently undergoing restructuring and intends to offer new learning opportunities soon, which will be updated on this page. If individuals or organisations are interested in any of the courses listed below, contact us for more information (subject to capacity and availability). Ongoing learning opportunities are also being developed via Govan Folk University.
Ecopsychology – New course open now!
A new interdiscipline examining the interface between ecology and psychology. Our constantly changing society, its new technologies and timescales, underscore our daily lives. How can psychology help us understand environmental crises? What links psychology with ecology?
Action Research helps people deepen their learning about questions they feel passionate about. Research with others, not on them!
Learn-by-doing whilst engaging with inspiring articles and papers;
Enhance your leadership, facilitation and research skills;
Slow down, go further: develop awareness practices in your life and work.
Engaging the powers in the world. Can spirituality guide and inspire people working with social and ecological justice? Insights from psychology, philosophy and advanced management can expand participants’ understanding of spirituality, and how it underpins the wider community, inspiring effective activism.
Working for a trading organisation that aims to put people and environment first? Or thinking of setting one up? Investigate how values-led organisations, explicitly intent on delivering social and/or environmental benefits through trading, can maximise their contribution to ecological sustainability and social justice.
Food Culture & Agri-Culture
Agriculture is a massive global business impacting on ecosystems and human societies. This course overviews economic, social, political and cultural issues, exploring the complexity of the food economy.
Ecosystems regulate and maintain the conditions on earth suitable for life, providing us with oxygen, food, water and other resources. They are also essential to our cultural and social experience. Never before has our impact on ecosystems been greater. The dilemma? How do we sustain the ecosystems that sustain us?
