Sustainable Manitoba - Course Outline (*.PDF)
This course approaches local sustainability issues from an
interdisciplinary perspective. By looking at the ecological, social and
economic aspects from a variety of discipline perspectives, a fuller
understanding of sustainability is achieved. The broad range of
perspectives is achieved through participation of guest speakers from
other faculties and outside of the university as well as excursions
outside of the classroom.
Certain threads that will be found throughout the course include the role of the arts in sustainability, aboriginal issues, social justice, human health, and landscape's relationship to identity.
As one small step towards living more sustainably, we ask that all students and guest speakers use only refillable beverage containers in class such as reusable coffee mugs and water bottles. Through education and small personal actions such as these, we can realize positive change.
