HDCB00114U Sustainable Denmark? Environmental Challenges in a Cultural Context
The world faces a number of essential environmental problems. In this course, we are going to focus on some of the key challenges and on the specific ways in which they are expressed in a Danish context. We will discuss causes and possible solutions to these problems. And we will look at the environment as part of a socio-material network including humans – not as their adversary. The challenges that we will concern ourselves with are: The sustainability concept, landscape and land-use changes, agriculture and pollution of the aquatic environment, biodiversity loss, food production and animal welfare, global warming and future energy demands, clean and not-so-clean air, urbanization, and the emergence of new environmental ideologies.
