Spring 2017 Environmental Action Events

People’s Climate Solidarity March – MN

When: Saturday, April 29th 2:30-6

Join the People’s Climate March solidarity event in the Twin Cities.

The People’s Climate March (2.0) is happening to challenge the backwards and dangerous policies of the Trump Administration and the threat they pose to our climate and our communities.

This is a moment to bring the range of progressive social change movements together. Pushing back against the Trump agenda and at the same time pushing forward on our vision of a clean, safe world where the rights of all people are protected and expanded means we all must work together.

Join us on April 29th as we resist, build, and rise in the face of the threats to our communities. Starts at 2pm at the Federal Building in downtown Minneapolis with a march and rally through downtown.

Students for Justice & Peace will be coordinating transportation to the march for those that want to join! (no need to be a member)

This course fulfills the core-area in natural science in the Natural Science and Mathematical and Quantitative Reasoning requirement in the core curriculum.

BIOL 209: Biology of Sustainability

Influences of humans on the global environment have reached unprecedented levels, increasing the need for society to strive to live in a sustainable manner. Many issues facing the environment have a biological basis. Thus, an understanding of basic biology is necessary to understand and address many environmental issues. This course will cover the fundamental biology involved with five environmental issues at the global scale: climate change, excessive nutrient loading into ecosystems, agricultural production, chemical contaminants, and loss of biodiversity. Specific biological principles to be covered include energy and nutrient mass balance by organisms and ecosystems, homeostasis and organismal physiology, and population dynamics and conservation biology. Prerequisite: A minimum grade of C- in BIOL 208, or any 100-level GEOL, and CHEM 112 or CHEM 115

Prerequisite: COJO 111 or permission of instructor

 ECON 337: Econ of the Public Sector

This course examines the role of government in a modern economy. It develops a set of concepts that will allow students to evaluate policy alternatives. The following are among the particular topics likely to be addressed: externalities and environmental protection, education, the redistribution of income, health care, social insurance, taxation and tax reform, cost-benefit analysis, fiscal federalism, and state and local government finance. In each case, the focus is on whether intervention by government is appropriate, what the most effective form of any such intervention is, and how alternative policy interventions affect the private decisions made by citizens and business firms.

 ENGL 315: Environmental Writing/Community

How do we write about the environment in an age of rapid climate change, and is there anything we can do to get involved in our local community? In Environmental Writing and Community Outreach, students will attempt to grapple with these questions while striving toward hope. Students will discuss and analyze texts that interrogate the Anthropocene–the current geological age which has been dominated by human activity–and use that thinking to collaborate with local organizations focused on sustainability right here in the Twin Cities. Possible texts include FIELD NOTES FROM A CATASTROPHE by Elizabeth Kolbert, THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING by Naomi Klein, and WRITING NATURE by Carolyn Ross. This course satisfies the Theory and Practice distribution requirement for English majors and counts as a non-literature course for English with Writing Emphasis majors.
