Introducing students to some of the most pressing issues relating to the environment, this cluster challenges students to think critically about how environmental governance takes place and envision how to foster sustainable and equitable development. It exposes students to different ways of defining “nature,” and investigates how economic, cultural and political transformations are changing our relationship with the earth.
