SCUPE S-H 307: Eco-Justice: A Vision for a Sustainable City
The church has a significant role in developing a holistic vision for a sustainable city as an outworking of the concept of shalom, a just peace. The course will evaluate the three components of sustainable community development: the three E’s of economics, environment and equity (or social justice).
Participants will explore the course topic via readings, panel discussions and site visits. Students will have the option of exploring key issues such as energy policy, food production, environmental justice and pollution and how these challenges relate to the central course themes.
Central to the course is the question, “What does it mean to be a sustainable urban community?”
