CLM 260 - Regional Climate Change Solutions

3 Credits

Climate change is affecting communities and ecosystems around the globe, and the region surrounding Western Lake Superior is no exception. In this class, students explore climatic changes and their impacts in our region, then undertake efforts to address the challenges that climate change is presenting to area communities and ecosystems. Through meeting with area experts students gain perspectives on climate change challenges in several fields, such as water quality, traditional indigenous lifeways, public health, tourism and outdoor recreation, urban infrastructure and planning. Students select a challenge to engage as a service-learning project and work with community partners to produce a solution to the challenge. Examples of project outcomes include a public event, informative media, a grant proposal, and a research review.
