Syllabus

The world faces challenging environmental problems. They are challenging because different people typically contribute differently to environmental change, and because its effects will be felt differently by different people in different places. Understand environmental injustices This free online course will help you understand how injustice is a common feature of many environmental problems. Over 10 weeks, we’ll look at deforestation, biodiversity loss, climate change and other environmental issues, asking questions such as: ● Can we manage tropical forests to increase timber revenues and carbon stocks, while ensuring that the people who live in them can fulfil their own subsistence needs and vision of a healthy ecosystem? ● How can protected areas strike the right balance between contemporary global interests in species conservation, local interests, the needs of future generations and rights of nature? We’ll show that sustainable environmental management requires attention to justice - that we need to strike the right balance between the needs, interests, rights and aspirations of various stakeholders today, and those of both nature and future generations. Learn with UEA’s Global Environmental Justice Group You’ll learn with the University of East Anglia’s Global Environmental Justice Group - an interdisciplinary mix of scholars interested in the links between social justice and environmental change. Through a series of films shot in Africa, Asia and Latin America, you’ll meet environmental activists and find out how justice can be a powerful motivator for environmental action. You’ll share your own experiences with other learners around the world, thinking about how you can put academic theory into practice, through course discussions, quizzes and assignments. The course will give you a taste of UEA’s MSc in Climate Change and International Development and MSc in Environment and International Development.
