DEVP E-110. Foundations of Sustainable Development

The broad goal of this course is to introduce students to the foundations of key sectoral and thematic knowledge for important challenges to sustainable development, including food and nutritional security, social service delivery, energy policy, water resource management, urbanization, infrastructure, human rights, biodiversity, adaption to climate change, mitigating greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs), sustainable business, ethics, governance, and education. Through a global classroom, lectures are attended virtually with academic partners of the Global Association from around the world. The course consists of weekly live broadcasts featuring international experts. Broadcasts are facilitated and recorded live by Lehigh University and available for asynchronous viewing; however, live participation is encouraged. Topics presented in the broadcasts are discussed during weekly web conference sessions.
