ENVRES 215A: Topics in International Justice, Rights, and the Environment

As the effects of environmental change are increasingly felt by people around the globe--whether point-source pollution from factories, livelihood deterioration from overfishing, or exposure to climate change impacts--it is more urgent than ever that we engage critically and creatively with the justice, ethics, and rights implications of these changes.

Through guest lectures, student-led discussions, readings, and creative writing, students will engage with cutting-edge research on these topics.

ENVRES 247: Navigating Complexity: Design, Strategy, and Decision Making for Systemic Challenges

Environmental issues fall in a class of challenge that demand a systems perspective and the ability to navigate complexity at many levels. Inter-related multi-outcome challenges not only require systems approaches in understanding the problem, but also dealing with the complexities of how to transform them in the real world. This class will introduce students to concepts regarding new mindsets, toolsets, and skillsets that are going to be increasingly pertinent as we move into an era marked by growing levels of complexity, uncertainty, and urgency. This is a hands-on class where the students will experience the act of unraveling complexity, co-creating interventions, and making decisions to transform systems at scale. ENROLLMENT: Course enrollment priority given to E-IPER graduate students. Please contact program staff at mkuida@stanford.edu for permission code.
