This course introduces students to the community and the environment through the interdisciplinary discipline of natural sciences with socio-political sciences and links environmental- ecological, social and economic aspects toward achieving sustainable societies. Students will be exposed to the concept of capitalism encompassing the world's economic-political system in line with the environmental-ecological crisis. Students will be encouraged to discuss and articulate their views on the interests of various conflicting parties, for example between government, corporate and non-governmental environmental activists.
