ENV 105 Social Responsibility and the World of Nature

Course Description: This course considers the idea of citizenship in relation to obligations to nature through a multidisciplinary examination of primary texts from economics, environmentalist studies, philosophical ethics, political economy, and social ecology. Direct student participation in the workings of local government will provide the community-based component and encourage leadership skills through active engagement on Community Board and Town Council environmental committees (environmental committees include land use, preservation, etc.). While in-class reports and a journal focus on the relationship between the more theoretical course readings and the civic experience serve to integrate learning and service.

Course Rotation: NY, PLV Fall and Spring.
