ENSC 430

Honours Project in Environmental Sustainability - Fall/Winter 2022-23

Course Description

This course is a capstone experience for ENVS and ENSC majors. It incorporates many of the issues and concepts you have been exposed to in Environmental Studies and requires you to apply knowledge and methods you have learned in other courses toward a ‘real world’ case study. The case study for the 2022/23 year is climate change and cities. We will explore what cities around the world are doing to mitigate and adapt to climate change and students will work in small groups to develop proposals for the City of Kingston (or other entities within the city, such as Queen’s) to consider adopting. The fall term includes a series of lectures and skills workshops that can be completed at your own pace, and individual assignments to prepare for the final group project. The Winter term primarily involves small group work (there will be 2-3 class meetings to share progress reports). 

PREREQUISITE Level 4 and registration in an ENSC Major, ENVS Medial, EBIO, ECHM, EGEO, EGPY, ELSC or ETOX Plan or permission of the School.
