Headlines and conversations around big environmental issues like climate change can sometimes feel overwhelming and hopeless. It may even seem like there's a fundamental conflict between environmental sustainability and our own happiness, health, and quality of life. Does it always have to be this way? What if we could better understand these issues in a more positive and complimentary manner? We'll analyze and break down writing and arguments on these big topics, and start to develop an alternative argument of our own. The course will utilize various writing styles including personal reflection, a poster, academic article, and a video script. We'll learn to write toward a broad audience, and in doing so seek to illuminate a more positive path forward for us and the world.

When Offered Fall.
