SUST 1001U – Fundamentals of Sustainability I: Science & Technology


This course provides the foundations of sustainability in two broad areas: (i) basic science of sustainability, and; (ii) application and measurement of sustainability. We will introduce the conceptual, interdisciplinary framework of sustainability science by examining its physical, biological, economic and social components. This will be followed by discussion of how this scientific knowledge might be measured and applied in order to better respond to sustainability challenges. Canadian examples will be used wherever possible but the underlying themes will highlight the need for a global, integrated approach.
