ENVS 1000 - The Sustainability Challenge
What is sustainability and what challenges are we facing now and in the future? What is my impact and what can I do about it? In the course, students will learn about the “three-legged stool” (economic, environmental, and social) of sustainability and how to use systems thinking to better understand the complex natural and human systems we rely upon for food, water, energy, business, etc. Students will “take the sustainability challenge” and measure their own current impacts and compare them to their impacts after taking actions to be more sustainable. The collective results will then be used to propose action plans to inspire others on campus and in the broader community to do the same.
