Australian Environmental Futures - ENV267

This interdisciplinary unit introduces and critically examines key environmental, social, economic, cultural and political processes and relationships that underpin environmental management and sustainability in urban, rural and remote Australia. Vital environmental and social issues, including water security, land and ecosystem conservation, population growth, urban development, and climate variability and environmental change, are considered in the context of integrated and adaptive approaches to management at a range of scales. The unit also explores fundamental concepts such as environmental justice, governance, decision making, and system connectivity, and encourages students to discover more about the past and present in order to contribute to improved environmental futures.
