"Zero Waste: Solutions for a Sustainable Future" is an award-winning*, crash-course Everything We Can Do to Save The Planet 101 that aims to equip its students with the tools necessary for changing the fate of humanity. We begin with an in-depth look at consumption, waste streams, and the materials that modern society is made of. Following that, we delve into the circular economy, cradle-to-cradle design, the industrialization of modern food, sustainable cities & architecture, climate change & politics, decarbonization, and more. This course is solutions-based, with scalable actions that you can implement in your life, community, and career to properly address the ecological crisis. Past students agree that it will invariably change your life and make you see the world differently.
The course is lecture-style, with minimal homework, a weekly bCourses discussion, and a short take-home final.
