Nature Matters: Caring and Accountability

Course Level 3: Advanced

Estimated Study Time: 15-18 hours

This course considers environmental responsibility and what may matter from a caring perspective and an accountability perspective. Caring for an environment compromising the natural world and ensuring accountability for harm or wrong done to the environment.

This course examines the formal processes involved in developing accountability in the context of sustainable development. The persuasiveness of the sciences (both social and natural) in deliberations around sustainability, and more specifically on issues of ecological restoration, is the subject of a reading by Eric Higgs. Higgs draws out the problems associated with the duality of cultures – science and non-science – in raising issues that matter for environmental responsibility.
