Course detail: ZERO1110 - Water Resource Sustainability
This course provides a framework for learning about our water future and ways we might define and achieve sustainability in water use and management. Concerns of ethics, culture, economics, politics, and environmental health will be discussed within the contexts of issues such as the global water crisis, water footprints, water pollution, human water systems, water security, and sustainable water technologies.

This course is intended for anyone with an interest in water issues and will have a format that includes lectures, in-class discussions of current events/articles in a seminar-style format, short exams, and a final paper and presentation for the optimal learning environment. When handouts are provided for the reading assignments or additional information is requested of the student, these will lead to the seminar-style class formats, in which, each student will be responsible for leading the discussion on his or her assigned section or researched topic.
