EDUC 387 - Science, Spirituality, and Peace Education: Addressing Climate Change

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)
Climate Change is arguably the most pressing issue of our day. Utilizing the three core values of peace education as our starting point (Planetary Stewardship, Humane Relationship, Global Citizenship) this course will examine global responses to climate change through the lens of peace education and global religions and spirituality. We will explore the science of climate change and how polarizing the topic can be thanks in no small part due to variations in educational practices (among other influences). We will also explore how various religious traditions conceive of nature, stewardship and climate change and their “call” to address it. Finally, we will engage with case studies of real environmental efforts from around the world in both formal and informal educational settings. The Department.

One 2-hour period.
