Course Description: In this course, students explore sustainable development with the aim of deciding whether it is a suitable concept with which to explore the cultural, environmental, and economic challenges facing society. In addition to the debates over sustainable development, this course provides students with the skills needed to examine, analyze, and report on challenges related to their interests. At its heart, the course explores the primary question of sustainable development, which is whether it can be useful in a world (seemingly) approaching numerous catastrophic tipping points. The climate is changing, the oceans are acidifying, the soils cannot keep producing our food, and wealth is being concentrated amongst a smaller and smaller segment of the world.
