ENVS 120 - Foundations of Sustainability

Sustainability is an interdisciplinary field that examines the interrelated environmental, economic, social and technological problems facing humans at local, regional and global scales.  This course takes a scientific approach to understanding sustainability: providing a foundation of the concepts, principles and tools from diverse fields that contribute to understanding and responding to problems such as climate change, environmental degradation, and social inequalities.  Introducing perspectives from the natural and social sciences, arts and humanities, and professional disciplines, it explores how their interconnection increases the prospects for creating a more sustainable future.
