ENVRINST 220: The Social Ocean: Ocean Conservation, Management, and Policy

This interdisciplinary seminar examines current ocean issues and ideas through a series of readings, discussions, and guest lecturer presentations of seminal works about ethical, physical, and emotional relationships of human beings to the marine world. Through the lenses offered by several classic readings, we will examine and reinterpret the challenges of fisheries collapse, climate change, shipping, marine spatial planning, biodiversity conservation, and the management of land-sea interactions. Though the seminar is open to all undergraduate and graduate students, our course is designed especially for those with a particular interest in studying and solving key issues of ocean policy and management, from coastal adaption to fisheries management to cumulative impacts assessments. In addition to this interest, students must be willing to take the time to dig deeper into the foundations of environmental thinking about the relationship of human beings and the sea.

Invited speakers from Stanford, other universities, government agencies, business, and non-governmental organizations will discuss relevant topics such as climate change, agricultural and urban water demand, impacts on business, management of freshwater ecosystems, markets and pricing, and other topics to be determined. Class discussion will focus on potential solutions in the areas of policy, markets, technology, and other interventions. Assignments will require students to applying knowledge from readings, lectures, and discussions to practical, real-world scenarios in the form of public comments, editorials, plans, or proposals.
