Honours Project in Environmental Sustainability - Fall/Winter 2021-22

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 2021/22 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 is synchronous (lectures will be recorded to accommodate students in other time zones). The Winter term primarily involves small group work (there will be 2-3 class meetings to share progress reports). Students will be asked at the start of Fall term to indicate whether they prefer to work in a group that will meet in person or online.

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