Energy, Climate, and Social Change

Social Concerns Seminar
CSC 33985

This course will examine the relationship between energy, consumption and environmental ethics with the aim to foster an environment that encourages, in the words of Pope Francis, an ‘ecological conversion’ at a personal and communal level. Students will engage in conversation, reflection and experiences that animate the adaptation of a new way of being related to the earth and the care of creation, and will gain vision for ways to advocate for serious responses to climate/environmental issues at the social/structural level. This seminar includes an immersion to Washington, D.C., during Fall Break to meet with policy makers, researchers, and advocacy groups.

Immersion Dates: Fall Break, 2021

Class Dates: Mondays: 5:05–6:20 p.m., September 13–November 15, 2021
