Ethical Cities



*This credential is only available to current RMIT students

How do you see the future of your city? How could it be fairer, more sustainable or better governed? Most important of all: how can you make those things happen?

This course gives you a rock-solid grounding in building the cities of the future. By embarking on a survey of case studies from around the world, and a deep dive into the principles of the United Nations Global Compact, you’ll construct your personal approach to improving governance, boosting sustainability and developing a better quality of life – in any city you set your sights on.
