ENVU 3300 - Sustainability Issues and Solutions
This course is designed to familiarize students with basic concepts, principles and issues geared toward sustainability, and to provide working tools for sustainability planning. The three major interactive dimensions of sustainability are delineated – ecological sensitivity, social responsiveness and economic responsiveness – and cover case study examples. A Sustainability Lifecycle Analysis will be developed to provide a guide for understanding sustainability and identifying sustainability intervention points for optimizing sustainability initiatives. While sustainability is a strongly interdisciplinary subject, the course addresses sustainability in specific sectors, including energy, food, housing, financial services, urban planning, transportation and manufacturing. With those areas in mind, coursework centers on student development of sustainability plans in areas of special interest, including workplace, community or household.
