Water Planet: Perspectives on Sustainability Online Summer Course


Contributed by Mara Alper

If you like water in any way, shape or form, here is a class for you. Enter the world of this essential element as we explore questions such as: What is your water footprint? Why is water considered 'Blue Gold'? Why is water important in many religious rituals? We will use perspectives from the arts, humanities and sciences, with a focus on the global politics of water and sustainability and its media representations. Internet readings, videos, guest lecturers and discussions link students with national and international experts. You can do this course any time of the day online from anywhere with high-speed internet access.
