When someone mentions being “sustainable,” “eco-friendly,” or “green,” what do you immediately think of? Do you feel alienated from the environmental movement sometimes because it doesn’t seem relevant to your major, career, or life? Why should sustainability even matter to you? This course, presented by the Student Environmental Resource Center, is meant to introduce sustainability as a multi-faceted and interdisciplinary concept embodying business, economics, public health, engineering, and ethnic studies, as well as its real practical applications in students’ lives. We will look at an array of topics to develop a deeper understanding and critique of the larger environmental movement through lectures, student presentations, group discussions, articles, and videos. Over the course of the semester, this DeCal serves to provide some food for thought that can link every student’s personal and professional interests to sustainable living.
