CCTP 619 - Sustainability:Thry & Practice
Although often thought of as a purely environmental issue, sustainability has become one of the most important interdisciplinary topics of our time. Economics, bio-physics and chemistry, history, architecture, engineering, and sociology, along with most other disciplines, have a role to play in solving this important and complex crisis. In ‘Sustainability: Theory and Practice,’ we will explore the foundational issues involved in sustainability to understand how we arrived at the situation we are in. We will then review and critique various sustainable solutions from a systems perspective to identify practical approaches to addressing large and complex problems. Taking a project-based approach in collaboration with Georgetown's Sustainability Office, students will leverage the campus as a living laboratory in which to conceptualize, develop, and initiate real-world sustainability solutions.  By the end of the semester, students will gain a refined understanding of sustainability theory as well as first-hand, applied experience devising and testing solutions.
