Environmental Responsibility, Ethics, Policy and Action (TD866)

If the student has ever wondered how to be a responsible environmental citizen then this course considers what it means to be responsible, to make a right decision, or to achieve a just outcome for the natural world that is shared; such questions affect many students on both personal and professional levels; this course provides a framework for analysis, and innovative tools promoting individual and collective responsibility for decisions and action; students examine how cultural traditions influence attitudes towards the environment, and develop skills in advocacy, argumentation, debate, evaluating direct action, and constructing and making sense of environmentally related documentation such as briefing papers and viewpoint articles.
