This course is a survey of sustainability, global climate change, and efforts on an international, national, and personal level that can effect the change necessary to become more sustainable. It will give the student the information necessary to discuss the general topic, and to evaluate new information about global climate change and what can be done about it as that information comes along over the next few years.

The approach of the course is to look at the antecedents of sustainability, some of the key terms, national and local policies, alternative energy sources, and individual efforts that lead to a more sustainable lifestyle.
