|科目の目的・到達目標||Objectives: 1) to offer an overview of the Environmental Movement; 2) to have students engage deeply in such topics as Endangered Species, Environmental Law, and Green Economic Growth. I will use documentaries and films to ensure that all students, regardless of English ability, can understand.
|授業の概要||Environmentalism 1 will focus on what has already been done, including the Rio Declaration (1992), the Kyoto Protocol (1997), and the Oslo Declaration of Sustainable Consumption (2006). Students will study the origins of the environmental movement, beginning with the Conservation Movement of the 19th century. Some of the topics the first semester: 1) Silent Spring (1962); 2) Endangered Species; 3) Back to Nature Movements/Organic Food; 4) Environmental Movement Takes Shape (1970s); 5) Earth Day (1970)—its underlying goals; 6) Environmental Laws (1970s); 7) Exponential Growth—studies on Economic Growth vs. Climate Protection; 8) The Future—what will life be like in 2050, with the world at 9 billion.
