We create leaders of Sustainable Development

Sustainable Development is a challenge of the moment. The youth are expected to lead the sustainable development movement. There is no alternative to interdisciplinary knowledge and competency in leading Sustainable Development. Besides theoretical ground, an empirical understanding of the three main ‘Pillars of Sustainable Development: Environment, Social, and Economic Development’ is crucial. The UIU offered BSS (Hons.) in Environment and Development Studies nourishes you to grow as a compatible young leader to reconstruct a knowledge-based sustainable society. The graduates in Environment and Development Studies from UIU will have employment opportunities in the government organizations, banks and financial institutions, education and research institutions, non-government and private organizations, NGOs, INGOs, industries, electronic and print media, power sector organizations, and in various sectors in the national and international domain.

In a speech in 2015, Mr. Bill Gates, co-founder of the Microsoft Corporation, predicted an infectious virus and an impending pandemic, coinciding with the current global epidemic of coronavirus infection. A few months ago, he predicted another catastrophic pandemic that is ‘Climate Change’. By 2060, climate change will be as deadly as Covid-19 and by 2100, it will be five times more frightening than the current one. To win over contemporary global challenges regarding climate change and sustainable development, there is no substitute for having up-to-date knowledge of environment and development. UIU’s BSS in Environment and Development Studies promises to build leaders in national and international spheres in tackling climate change catastrophes, which is a barrier to sustainable development.
