Week 5 – Final Assignment

The Journey to Sustainability

[WLO: 4] [CLOs: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]

Prior to beginning work on this assignment, review chapters 9 and 10 of the Turk and Bensel’s Contemporary Environmental Issues textbook (2014).

During the first four weeks of this course, we explored sustainability issues relating to biodiversity, food production, water resources, and our atmosphere and climate. You researched different terms related to each week’s topic, explaining the term, and offering suggestions for how each of us might contribute to achieving sustainability in relationship to that particular concept, issue, or place.

Living in a Sustainable World

Imagine a future in which human beings have achieved environmental sustainability on a global scale. In this second part of your final assignment, you will be describing what a sustainable Earth will look like in the future, providing examples throughout to support your descriptions. You will be including all the terms that you have researched during Week 1 through 4 of this class, underlining each term as you include it. In your paper, use grammar and spell-checking programs to insure clarity. Proofread carefully prior to submitting your work. Finally, you will submit the document to Waypoint.

Your paper will consist of seven paragraphs: an introduction, a conclusion, and one paragraph relating to each week’s topic. In your paper, use this format to address the following elements with the assumption that environmental sustainability has been achieved:

  • Introduction:
    • Describe how our relationship to nature will be different from what it is at present.
    • Examine how we will cope differently with the ways that natural phenomena affect our lives.
  • Week 1:
    • Describe what Earth’s biodiversity and ecosystems will look like.
  • Week 2:
    • Examine how agricultural production will be different in the future.
  • Week 3:
    • Differentiate between how we will manage our water resources in the future compared to how we do so right now.
  • Week 4:
    • Examine how we will meet our energy needs in the future in a way that will enable us to maintain a habitable atmosphere and climate.
  • Week 5:
    • Describe how waste management will be different in the future.
  • Conclusion:
    • Summarize some of the major social, economic, political, and ecological choices and tradeoffs that will need to be overcome for this sustainable future to arrive.
