Class Info

I could describe this course to you, but the authors of the course textbook, the Science Education for Public Understanding Program (SEPUP), do it quite well:

"Science and Sustainability is a different kind of science course.  It not only covers many of the scientific concepts usually included in biology, chemistry, and physics classes, but also relates those concepts to issues of sustainability... the ability of populations of living organisms to continue, or sustain, a healthy existence in a healthy environment 'forever'.  Many of the activities of today's human societies are not carried out in ways that promote sustainability... Some of the unsustainable practices of today's societies have resulted in overcrowding in urban areas, decreased air and water quality, reduced biodiversity, increased starvation, and other global problems.  This course will present you with choices that might help solve some of these problems.  After evaluating the scientific evidence, you will determine which options are appropriate for the problem in question.  In some cases, you will even be given a chance to develop your own solutions for a problem." (SEPUP 1)
