About this course:

This course focuses on the social aspect of sustainability, which at its core is about human well-being. The emphasis is on behaviors and characteristics of the individual as well as the larger group and community influences that help shape and transform the individual into a sustainable global citizen. Topics include psychosocial and socio-cultural behaviors affecting beliefs, change and decision-making; potential effects of sustainable action vs. inaction; pathways toward sustainable education and awareness; advocacy and activism; and the ethics of sustainability efforts across nations, including future opportunities and challenges.  Upon completing this course, students have a preparatory knowledge and understanding of individual and group roles in global sustainability; the interconnectedness and necessity of collaboration between social, economic and ecological responsibilities; and the importance of advocacy and the media in raising and maintaining awareness of global sustainability and citizenry.
