GEOG 368: The Green Economy

The Green Economy.  What is it and how does it function?  What does it mean for our future?  What are the implications for cities, community, and globalization?  What kind of policies lay the foundation for green economic development, and what challenges and opportunities lie within?  And what does 'green' mean anyway?  This course is a challenging exploration into the day-to-day practices and policies of the green economy, particularly in the United States and the Southwest.  The class will be devoted to understanding how the green economy functions and why, through readings, lectures, visiting speakers, and field studies.
