Id: 040780 Credits Min: 3 Credits Max: 3

Description

This course explores some of the most challenging questions of our times: How can modern society thrive on a finite and changing planet? In what ways is our climate changing and what is causing those changes? How will human society be impacted: What could a transition to a sustainable, green, low-carbon economy consists of? We will explore these questions through a combination of simulations, serious games, and 'systems thinking' - building a skill set to think strategically about complex, dynamic problems. The course considers current events as they relate to climate change and sustainability and introduces students to real-world, interactive tools that allow them to explore scenarios and solutions for themselves.
