The world is shrinking. The ice caps are melting. A sneeze, thousands of kilometres away, starts a health pandemic, and technology enables us to intimately view not only earthquakes and tsunamis but human rights violations around the world. This reality calls for an understanding of sustainability, diversity, and social justice. Gain a personal of yourself as a citizen of the world and apply it to your own life. Examine on a personal level how a global citizen becomes aware of the wider world, respects diversity, is outraged by injustice, participates in community from the local to global level, and feels compelled to act to make the world a more humane and sustainable place. This course meets the Civic Life and Social and Cultural Understanding General Education themes.
