GEO300.1 Sustainability and Environmental Justice in Europe (Fall, Spring)

Sustainability and Environmental Justice in Europe is an intensive eleven-day Signature Seminar field study experience. Discover how innovation is keeping the Nordic countries of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland ranked as the most sustainable places on the planet and see how progress towards sustainable development goals made here compares to other parts of the region and the world. You will also examine the academic field of environmental justice to assess whether this progress is still enough to ensure all life can flourish. With visits to Copenhagen, Bergen, and Stockholm, you will have a direct experience of the inequalities in access to clean air, water, energy and land. The final stop is in the Sápmi region–recognised as one of the last wilderness areas in the region– giving you the opportunity to discover how climate change and other environmental challenges disproportionately affect the Sámi (the only indigenous people located in the European Union) way of life and their land. The three credits earned for this pre-semester seminar will be included in the maximum 19 credits that you can earn for your London semester. Remember, you must enroll in a minimum of 15 credits – including this seminar – for the semester.
