ENVS 80.08 The Practice of Science Policy & Diplomacy

How can the best, most current, and most credible scientific knowledge more actively inform global debates and policy advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), climate change mitigation strategies, international security, global health, poverty alleviation, and peace building? And how can our existing science and policy systems become more inclusive, more equitable, and more informed by the next generation of young leaders? This course introduces students to emerging opportunities for engagement and action at the intersection of science, technology, policy, and diplomacy, by developing the “boundary spanning” skills critical for more science-informed, equitable, and inclusive policy solutions. Coursework will be highly interactive and multidisciplinary, including negotiation simulations, policy brief development, social impact work with local organizations, and seminars discussing current issues with invited leaders in science policy and science diplomacy.

Degree Requirement Attributes


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.
