This course looks at environmental sustainability on three levels: personal, community, and organizational. In this course, students will explore and gain understanding of environmental problems and how they can be addressed at the personal, community and organizational levels, as well as mitigation and adaptation strategies for actions and projects moving forward, i.e., how to be environmentally sustainable. The practical application of the course will result in an environmental impact assessment created by the students relevant to their communities or potential future projects.
