The Sustainable Travel Management course is arranged into four modules, offering weekly video content, a variety of tools, templates, and resources; as well as live, on-camera discussion and peer-to-peer learning; and a group project to apply course learnings to real-world issues. Participants can expect up to two hours per week of coursework.
