Welcome to geo302p/ugs305: sustaining a planet
Achieving a sustainable planet is perhaps our most significant societal challenge. This new interdisciplinary-taught signature course will provide an overview of the three main pillars of sustainability: economy, social equity, and environment. We will examine how the Earth and its environment work, environmental change on local and global scales due to natural and man-made causes, and how science, technology, economics, the media, and social policy are interrelated and affect individuals, communities, nations. The goal of this course is for students to better understand how the natural world works, how natural systems interact with and are modified by engineered systems, and how their lives fit into these systems. more course info >>
