GEOG 1115-1116: Seeking Sustainability
Seeking Sustainability I and II is a two-part class dedicated to learning about sustaining the world’s interconnected environmental, social, and economic systems. The first semester will have a focus on critically and constructively examining “sustainability.” The course seeks to broaden our conceptualizations on what sustainability is, and what it could be, within the context of the most relevant issues facing humanity today. The relevance of language, food, energy, family, business, biodiversity and design to sustainability will be discussed to provide a multifaceted understanding of sustainability and how to be sustainable.
Seeking Sustainability fulfills a requirement in the Pathways to Sustainability Pathways minor and an elective in the Appalachian Cultures and Environments, Blue Planet, and Organizational Leadership Pathways minors.
