This course will help you get to know yourself as you explore what you value, what other people value, and which values and behaviours will work to sustain the Earth. Taking the example of the School Strike for Climate to protect people’s rights to a sustainable future, we examine:
The cause students are striking for, and what they hope to achieve;
The groups involved and their points of view, values, and perspectives;
The consequences of the strikes; and
Whether they are achieving their purpose.

Note to new students: current students may be finishing an internal during the first week of term. You will be able to do some self-directed learning on sustainability at this time.
