GLE Minor in Environmental Stewardship
The GLE’s Minor in Environmental Stewardship brings together different disciplinary perspectives on climate change and sustainability, examining governance, leadership and ethical issues arising over time at scales from the global to the local. Environmental Stewardship is a term that has deep historical roots and is now beginning to be used widely again in natural resources management and conservation, and urban governance and community sustainability practices. The GLE Environmental Stewardship Minor provides learning opportunities to integrate theory and practice, exploring the scientific and Indigenous knowledge systems, as well as the spiritual and ethical principles, and public policy frameworks, that inform environmental stewardship in the 21st century.
