Global Change and Sustainability. US/Spain case study analysis

Spring. Fall. Credits: 3. Language: English

This course takes an interdisciplinary approach to understanding Global Change and solutions based on the sustainable use of natural resources. We will introduce a number of lenses and methodologies for understanding Global Change and implementing sustainable resource use strategies. Specifically, we will examine their application in comparative case studies between the US and Spain. Students can come both from the Sciences and Social Sciences and Humanities. An interest in Sustainable Development Goals and in applying sustainability across multiple disciplines is a plus. The course will be separated into two sections: discourse on global change (global risks and impacts, mitigation and adaptation), and applied sustainability through various stakeholder lenses. Throughout the course, we will introduce case studies via readings and field trips for comparative analysis.
