Introduction and Learning Objectives:
With a staggering 6.782 billion people inhabiting the planet, our impact is felt in virtually every corner of the
world. As we impact the world, the changes we are bringing about impact our survival. What are these
impacts? How can we minimize our impact on the world and visa versa? It is very tempting to fall into
paralysis given the myriad problems that we face. However, in future we will not have this option (luxury?) as
environmental impacts are expected to increasingly constrain our lives.
This course presents an overview of these issues mainly from a scientific viewpoint. Our goals are to:
1. understand and connect to the major impending issues that challenge our continued survival, and
2. understand and identify solutions to tackle these challenges.
Our learning objectives are to:
1. familiarize you with a wide array of environmental processes and issues arising from human
impacts, predominantly from a scientific viewpoint,
2. learn to integrate disparate issues with roots in science and social science, into policies and other
actions
3. improve your critical thinking and analytical tools,
4. improve your problem solving skills,
5. improve your ability to conduct research, assemble information, and communicate the results of this
analysis.

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
