Section Description

Few words are so deserving of dissection than ‘sustainability’ and ‘science’. This course will lead participants through the social and political underpinnings of these two words, and their relevance to several controversial issues commonly addressed by those engaged with the science of sustainability. Among the topics considered are the idea of planetary boundaries, resource scarcity and inequity, environmental pollution and environmental justice, global environmental change, and the relationships between sustainability, resilience and adaptation. Course content will be delivered entirely online over eight weeks, utilizing a range of evaluation methods.
