A real business case

Landscape Restoration for Sustainable Development: a Business Approach concludes with a real-life business case developed by ENABLE’s partners; RSM‘s own Case Development Centre and its Partnerships Resource Centre plus the foundation running the project, Commonland. By studying this business case, participants can deepen their understanding of the theories and frameworks learned during the course, as well as practising application of the tools and methods. Ultimately, participants will develop useful and creative business solutions for specific land restoration projects. The second MOOC is still under development. It will go into more detail of specific business and landscape restoration concepts.
