Taking the Leap into Stage Acting
Climate change (or “climate disruption”) is likely the most important problem of the 21st century. Everything from agriculture to health to international relations will be affected or made more difficult by powerful global changes in climate. In this course, participants will investigate why climate change is an ethical and not just a practical problem, why it is called a “wicked” problem, where responsibility lies, what climate justice requires, and the ethical implications of different responses to climate change. The instructor will present material that should encourage lively and thought-provoking discussions. A bibliography will be provided.
