Description: Sustainability involves meeting basic human needs without undermining human communities, culture, or natural environments.  This difficult goal requires recognition of the complex interrelationships among environmental, economic, and social forces and reexamination of our relationships to technology, natural resources, natural science, human development, and/or local to global politics.  Students will be introduced to a variety of topics including climate change and environmental pollution, economic globalization, north-south disparity, local and global strategies, agriculture and sustainable food production, environmental ethics and history, and social justice.  The course facilitates deeper student exploration of complex interrelationships among contemporary environmental, social, and economic problems and the solutions to overcome them.  In addition, it will help students articulate personal philosophies to guide more sustainable lifestyles (i.e., choices for resource use and other behaviors).
