EARTH 10: Design for a Habitable Planet

Climate change is happening. As a society, we know we need to accommodate it, design for it, and slow its progress, yet as individuals many of us struggle to take meaningful action. This class will use the iconic landscapes of California as a lens to address this challenge. How will they differ in 2025, 2050, 2100? During the course we will learn about the science of global change and the ways in which California may dramatically differ in the future as a result of changing temperatures and rainfall patterns, rising sea levels, shifts in flora and fauna, and decisions about the built environment and infrastructure. Using methodologies of human-centered design, we will explore how iconic landscapes influence perceptions of global change. We will generate ideas for communicating the impact of projected change and experiment with different ways of creating a sense of urgency. This class is for students interested in the impacts global change and in seeking new and innovative ways to commu more »
