CNSCI 1150 FYS: It's Not Easy Being Green

Explore what it means to be “green” in today’s world through readings, in-class discussions, debates, projects and field trips in this First Year Seminar. We will delve into 4 broad topic areas: green food/agriculture, green design/architecture, green energy, and green consumerism. We will speak to the Lesley green campus coordinator, and visit with several green campus programs at other local Universities. We will evaluate various approaches to environmental sustainability, both at Lesley, and as a part of a larger global community. At the end of the course, the students will reflect on whether this class led to changes in their own behaviors relating to how “green” they choose to live and act.
