  Course Description
This course looks at how communities play a role in environmental change. How does a community's actions develop into protection of environmental resources? Students will study how rural, urban and global communities, environmental issues differ and in what ways they are similar. How do different communities learn from each other and adapt the actions and methods used to the differing needs and circumstances of their own communities? In addition to looking at how communities address such issues as degraded water quality and hazardous waste dumps, it will also look at how to develop sustainable solutions through policies that promote green codes for government/community buildings, urban farming and the development of alternative energy industries (e.g. wind and solar farms).
