Description

Sustainability is a popular but contested concept. At its most basic it refers to the maintenance of systems, processes, and/or practices over time. This foundation course introduces students to transdisciplinary ways of understanding the contested history of ideas about sustainability in diverse fields of socio-ecological politics, and philosophy, Indigenous knowledge and environmental law, governance and leadership, and economics and environmental management. Taught through four modules, the course will include a one day Marae field trip and small group field work. A pastoral emphasis supports cohort building and communication skills for advocacy and analysis.
