Environmental Systems and Societies

 The prime intent of this course is to provide students with a coherent perspective of the interrelationships between environmental systems and societies; one that enables them to adopt an informed personal response to the wide range of pressing environmental issues that they will inevitably come to face.

Students’ attention can be constantly drawn to their own relationship with the environment and the significance of choices and decisions that they make in their own lives. It is intended that students develop a sound understanding of the interrelationship between environmental systems and societies, rather than a purely journalistic appreciation of environmental issues. The teaching approach therefore needs to be conductive to students evaluating the scientific, ethical and socio-political aspect of issues.

Environmental Systems and Societies is offered at Standard Level only.
