Sustainable Natural Resources Development Practicum | L4661

Sustainability has traditionally been focused on attaining harmony with nature rather than humanity. This course focuses on both--harmony with nature and humanity and will help prepare students (who will work with business leaders in these kinds of issues) for a morally complex and sustainable future so they can accept their moral obligations and duties to future generations, the deprived and the environment. Partnering with a local organization and utilizing the concept of "Action Learning," students will work in teams as they engage in real time problem solving of a complex issue involving social and environmental issues. It is anticipated the course will include a visit to a mine which will be the focus of the problem. For more information on this course, please contact Professor Vessels.
