ENVS 53 Science for Sustainable Systems

A great challenge of our age is to understand the dynamics of complex biological/environmental/human systems and move them toward sustainability. Lecture, discussion and project topics include methods and traditions in systems thinking; ecological resilience; adaptive management; systems dynamics modeling; theory and practice of sustainability in terrestrial, aquatic and marine ecosystems; real-world case studies of current projects, leadership for convening diverse stakeholders; and relevant principles of social and organizational learning.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
