ENP 210 - The Environmental Impacts of Consumerism


Students will examine consumerism both personally and globally as it impacts the environment, in an era where people are often considered “consumers” first and “citizens” second. Through recent writings, websites and examining personal habits we will evaluate social, environmental and psychological impacts of consumerism and materialist values and compare them to cultures with alternative worldviews. We will test tools for analysis, consider ethical guidelines for personal and institutional choices, and review initiatives for how to move to a less consumptive society.
Prerequisites: ENP-100 or SCI-150 or co-requisite COR-210.
Credits: 3
