As we move deeper into the 21st century, one thing seems certain: the state of the world is uncertain. Whether climate change, biodiversity loss, forest fires, food insecurity, or pandemic, it is clear societies face numerous challenges that threaten to undermine human health and well-being. In this course we examine the roots of these challenges, focusing primarily on climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, we ask questions about how these two emergencies came to be, how they are connected, and how we might respond to them in just, equitable, and courageous ways. This course offers an introduction to key concepts in the discipline of geography. Course materials reflect a range of concerns related to climate change and pandemic as well as diverse approaches to understanding them. Instruction is entirely online but will be interactive, discussion-based, and will draw on environmental data and creative concepts to strategize how to face forward and build better futures.
