Certificate in Environmental Impact Assessment - Local Governance, Citizen Engagement and Sustainability SUST 2000   Local Governance, Citizen Engagement and Sustainability
People make decisions that influence the way the world changes and the way in which it stays the same. This course is about people and how their roles and actions affect social and natural environments at the local level. We explore the roles and actions of individuals as consumers, citizens and as activists, and groups of people who work in local government, the legal system, the corporate and entrepreneurial sectors and with non-governmental organizations. The course uses a Problem Based Learning (PBL) approach to help us think critically as we explore the connections between people, their actions, and the complex issues associated with environmental and social sustainability.
