横断型

During the late 19th century, Scottish-American writer John Muir expressed his view on the connectedness of natural systems: "When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe." This idea of connectedness suggests that environmental problems result from complex interactions between humans and their environment. In this course, we will approach the global water system through a variety of disciplines (Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Earth sciences) to illustrate the concept of interrelatedness. Because the preservation of water as a precious natural resource is a problem faced by everybody, the solutions to water-related issues need to also take into account the historical, cultural, economical, ethical and political realities of all the stakeholders involved. This course aims at raising students' awareness about the global nature of environmental issues by focusing on the problem of water. By the end of this course comprising 13 lectures relying on in-class activities about specific case studies, students should be able to: 1) relate a specific water issue to the broader societal context in which it is inscribed 2) describe the variety of stakeholders involved in a problem as well as their interests 3) use group discussions / debates to compare opinions and propose solutions 4) evaluate the impact of the solutions on the local communities and the environment 5) design, implement and evaluate the solution to a small scale problem (group project)

授業の方法 Teaching Methods This course will follow a flipped pattern and students will be responsible for acquiring new information at home (through readings and videos) so that the class time can be dedicated to expanding this basic knowledge.
成績評価方法 Method of Evaluation In addition to a final essay (2000-2500 words), students are expected to complete punctual written assignments to prepare for research projects about a given "Challenge Topic". Unlike the final essay, the punctual assignments are produced by groups. Final essay [40 %] 2000-2500 word essay (reference list excluded) about a topic selected by the student in relation to one water issue Class participation [20 %] Includes attendance, participation to class activities and homework preparation. Punctual assignments [20 %] These are preparatory tasks for the "Challenge Topic" weeks. They consist of annotated bibliographies (500-700 words) on a topic fixed by the instructor. "Challenge Topic" task 10 % Performance in presentation, leading debates or discussions and group workshops.
