Description
In order for the human population to live 'more sustainably', it must live in ways that do not exhaust essential resources and do not pollute the land, water and air. For a natural ecological system to sustain itself, it must regenerate. This 2-hour interactive online course presents the ways we can blend human developments with the natural ecological system to maintain sustainability and regeneration of the earth's resources. Such topics as global warming, eutrophication, ecosystems and the costs of environmental impacts on land development projects are discussed in detail. This course also offers references to a broad range of materials on sustainable development and regenerative practices.
