Course Description: 

In light of looming environmental crises, what can individuals do to change direction? In this course we collectively examine our society to determine which cultural and personal values support, and which inhibit, sustainability. This course includes study, research, reflective writing and class discussion on the first book in the Ecochallenge series, Choices For Sustainable Living. Students participate in weekly minor “green" activities at home and report their accomplishments online at In addition, each student will create, develop, instigate and present a month long major sustainable activity designed to create a lasting change in their life and help move the world to a more ecologically sound future.
