Full course description
The weekly series explores relationships between sustainability and a wide range of inequalities to provide an overview of equity issues affecting progress toward environmental and social justice and sustainability. SU faculty along with guest speakers and community members examine inequality and sustainability through a multiplicity of lenses, investigating socio-political, historical, environmental, economic, and other factors affecting progress toward a sustainable world. The course lectures and readings seek to widen your understanding of how inequalities influence strategies to achieve sustainability, challenge your assumptions, and increase your awareness of issues of equity connected with environmental and social justice and sustainability. You will also become informed about opportunities in the local community to put what you learn into action. Bear in mind that all lectures are open to campus and community members.
