SUST 400 Creating a Sustainable Future

Addresses from a systems perspective multiple limiting factors in the environmental, social, and economic domains that constrain global sustainability and the interactions among these factors. The influence of civilization on these factors and on their interconnections is examined along with potential human interventions for ensuring long-term viability of critical systems. Includes a substantial immersive project component for assessing the sustainability of an existing system and developing recommended interventions for enhancing long-term success of that system.
