This interactive class highlights the primary resource issues we face as a global community and promotes thoughtfulness using the interplay of technology, networks and future orientation as a strategy for building the future we endeavor to achieve.
Participants will be able to understand how to critically examine the precepts on which our current economy is built and learn how to create a sense of fulfillment based on future oriented consumer decision-making.
This course provides fundamental concepts on which to base everyday consumer decisions. The design of the Center for Local Food and Sustainable Living was modeled using food, water and air as the guiding principles for decision-making.
Class description: Issues about air are not about sufficiency. There is plenty of air. They are about quality and climate change; which means, in large part, they are about energy. How do we deal with these issues in an equitable, economical, and ecologically sound manner? What are the connections between food, water, air and energy? Do we have to change our lives? Can technology make the difference? And again, the answers vary, but likely will come from a surprising source.
This class is appropriate for high school students (including home-schooled learners), professionals, technical occupations, home workers, and anyone else with an interest in charting a sustainable path for future generations. Faculty: Dexter Chapin, Faculty, Seattle Academy of Arts and Sciences
Dexter Chapin has a wide-ranging academic and applied background in environmental science and cultural anthropology with a Ph.D. in System Dynamics and Cybernetics. He has been teaching at the Seattle Academy of the Arts and Sciences for many years while leading community courses on issues of sustainability, but as he says, every time is brand new. The answers to the question, “What can I do to create a more sustainable future for myself and others?” constantly change.
