What are the challenges facing humanity today and in the future? How can we create and rediscover sustainable ways of living on this planet?
With accelerating trends as climate change, water scarcity, energy depletion, social injustice, financial crisis, resource wars and other challenges, there is a growing need for sustainable alternatives. This course connects lectures that describe the severity of the challenges and workshops that discuss the possible sustainable responses and solutions to those challenges within the context of a specific global city. Students will have the opportunity to link global challenges to their own local and cultural backgrounds.
