We are only beginning to understand the interconnectedness of our world and the large-scale problems that we are facing that pressures our generation particularly. This course is designed for anyone interested a in meaningful introduction to their campus’ carbon neutrality, sustainability, food action, and environmental justice communities; ways that scholarship and practices at the UC address issues of climate and ecological crisis, social equity, and regenerative economy; leadership modalities that will develop inner awareness as well as deepen understanding of the interdependence of all life, intersectionality, cultural narratives, collaborative problem solving, and systems thinking; tools for stepping into action; and opportunities to engage as students. Some specific topics we will explore in this course include the intersection of climate justice with dis/ability justice, LGBTQ+ identities, food justice, personal & community resilience, and Indigenous sovereignty.
Course assignments will largely be comprised of short personal reflection and/or artistic activities as well as a final project. Additionally, this course will include a variety of virtual guest speaking events featuring scholars and community members involved in the various intersections of climate justice.
Synchronous attendance is highly encouraged due to the very interactive nature of the course. Asynchronous engagement may also be offered to students with extenuating circumstances or time zone conflicts. For synchronous attendees, we will meet 7-8:30PM on Tuesdays.
No day(s) left until application deadline!
