247.113 Science and Sustainability for Science (15 credits)

A problem-based, interdisciplinary course introducing students to the scientific thinking and theories that underpin the relationship between science and sustainability. An exploration of how the Treaty of Waitangi underpins a partnership between Pākehā and Māori, focussing on ways in which science can be guided by Tikanga Māori (including culture, ethics and knowledge systems); and how Māori knowledge contributes to knowledge production in science, including the protection of Taonga species and resources within the context of sustainability of lands and waterways in Aotearoa. By examining the interactions between human, environmental and technological systems, students will develop their critical thinking, communication and literacy skills as they evaluate solutions to contemporary challenges in sustainability.
