Short Course: Protecting my Health through Sustainable Living
The focus of this course is on protecting one’s health through sustainable living. Participants will first consider the impact of climate change on their health and then the link between sustainable living and healthy living. Through an assessment of food choices, product choices, lifestyles, and living spaces, individuals can learn to consume and live responsibly whilst protecting their health. The course is structured around discussions, personal reflections, and assessments, as well as comparative analysis– enabling students to individually and collaboratively discuss and design sustainable lifestyles that support good health.
