ENV BIOL 7017 - Issues in Sustainable Environments

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2014

This course is designed to teach students to conceptualise and analyse our natural and built environments as an interconnected system. This means that it is multi-disciplinary in content and will require students to understand the trade-offs between use and conservation of resources. The course will emphasise the biophysical, social and economic dimensions of current and emerging environmental and resource management issues. It comprises a series of seminars by invited speakers from research, government, community and business sectors. Students will be expected to improve their skills in critical thinking and issue analysis, present a logical and succinct opinion piece on an environmental issue and write a scientifically informed article suitable for popular media.
