“Sustainability: A Global Introduction“ is an eight week course starting on August 27, 2012.
This free online course will examine questions such as:
- What are the biggest threats-is it loss of biodiversity, climate change, or population growth?
- Is “peak oil” real, and can renewable sources bridge the energy gap?
- Where are we headed-do demographics, economics, science and policy point towards a prosperous future?
This course is the first ever “MOOC” (Massive Open Online Course) on sustainability, and is being supported by the School of Earth, Society and Environment, the Office of Online and Continuing Education, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and by the University of Illinois.
