PH101 | A Sustainable World
Economic growth cannot continue exponentially in a finite world. Human activity and human numbers threaten the possibility of irreversible damage to the fragile biosphere on which all life depends. The threat of nuclear exchange looms amidst a politically charged atmosphere.
The current generation of students is the first one to face such existential problems and it may be the last one that can solve them. This course aims to direct the energy and passion of UC Berkeley undergraduates to learn, problem solve, create networks of interest groups, and develop a commitment and advocacy for change.
