Scottish Sustainability: Environmental Landscapes and Community Health
Public Health , Biology , Earth & Environmental Science , Sustainability
Scotland is a country with a natural landscape sculpted by glaciers, changing coastlines, and towns built by immigrants from various lands. Though a part of the United Kingdom, Scotland has a rich culture all its own. While meeting with local scientists and practitioners in both Edinburgh and Glasgow, this course will explore the natural history of the country, its past and present environmental health, and some current global-leading sustainability initiatives. We’ll focus on the relationship between environmental sustainability and human public health and compare American with Scottish trends in such areas as wind farms, invasive species, and public cycling programs.
28 hours of undergraduate course credit.
