Sustainability at ND/SMC/HCC

CSC 33958

This one-credit, interdisciplinary course is an exploration of the question “What is the relationship between healthy, sustainable communities and the principle of the Common Good?” Beginning with an introduction to basic principles of environmental justice, students will explore how the equitable and culturally appropriate distribution of environmental benefits and burdens serves the aim of community health and the common good. Reflective conversations and community visits will shape how students engage questions about the links between health disparities and disproportionate exposure to environmental pollution. Students will leave this course with a foundation of knowledge to address issues at the intersection of health, poverty, sustainability, and justice.
