Description
Daily headlines warn of new chemical dangers, species on the edge of extinction, global warming-- framing our planet as “at risk.” Some people stop listening, others get alarmed, while some others want to learn more in hopes of making a difference in the world.  Do you want to live a more sustainable life? In this environmental studies course, you will learn how to make more informed choices about your ecological footprint and gain a better understanding of how your choices impact on our world. This course is organized into five key themes: chemicals, globalization, climate change, food and energy. These five themes represent challenges that people face day-to-day managing choices relating to sustainability. In the final task of this course, you will demonstrate how you have acquired the skills and knowledge to organize your everyday life sustainably.
