About the course

In this course, we explore the concept of sustainability and how we can create sustainable cultures in our complex world. Sustainability challenges resist disciplinary categories and simple solutions. This course provides an introduction to real-world, complex sustainability challenges through literature drawn from natural and social sciences and the humanities, from interdisciplinary theory, and from insights into cases of sustainability issues around the world.
