Australian Environmental Futures - ENV267

This interdisciplinary unit critically examines key environmental, social, economic, cultural and political processes and relationships that underpin environmental management. It examines, using theory and case studies, how the environment is managed within and across urban, rural and remote areas in Australia. The unit will cover contemporary environmental and social issues affecting areas such as water security, land and ecosystem conservation, population growth, urban development, climate extremes and variability and how these are informed by government policy and programs and actions. The content and assessment tasks will support the development of technical and social skills and knowledge for those seeking careers in environmental science, policy, social science, planning and geography.
