Description
SUSTAINABILITY
Sustainability is a term that has many meanings, depending on who's using it, and we will cover most of them in this class, from green campuses to green-washing. The class features guest speakers from the academic, governmental, nonprofit and business sectors to offer as many perspectives as possible on sustainability topics. The real focus of the class, though, is the development of sustainability projects on campus and in the Pittsburgh community. Students also participate in sustainability-related events and field trips with the opportunity to present their work to a larger audience at the end of the semester.
