One of the most significant challenges faced by the world today is the development and use of regenerative ecologic, economic and social systems to support the continued life of humans and nature on earth. This concept has come to be known as “sustainability” and it is inextricably linked to environmentalism; both concepts which at their heart pertains to the preservation and maintenance of resources for present and future generations.

Germany has become one of the most significant supporters, developers and practitioners of sustainability and environmentalism. This course will examine how both ideas manifest themselves in Germany’s political, social, and economic arenas by providing a brief historical look at the rise of environmental consciousness in Germany and examining the impact of said consciousness on the everyday lives of Germans. Students will then learn about various areas of concern, for example, energy, natural resources, land use, and what Germany has done in these areas (wind energy, water energy, solar energy, nuclear energy, garbage disposal, recycling, land conservation, etc.), through readings, video clips and film.

Class Format:
