About Course

This course is a continuation of SUS 10 (Introduction to Sustainability). Students will use their so far accomplished knowledge to understand a richer awareness into the innumerable aspects of the causes, and examples, of the problems and situations raised by climate factors. As the climate factors negatively impact sustainability, the students will learn to research the issues in detail, for example, a) air quality, air pollution and its impact on environment; b) greenhouse gases and their effects; c) water pollution from industries, hospitals, factories etc and thus impacting sustainability, d) Chemical plants, factories and refineries devastating the sustainability etc. Moreover,…
This course is a continuation of SUS 10 (Introduction to Sustainability). Students will use their so far accomplished knowledge to understand a richer awareness into the innumerable aspects of the causes, and examples, of the problems and situations raised by climate factors. As the climate factors negatively impact sustainability, the students will learn to research the issues in detail, for example, a) air quality, air pollution and its impact on environment; b) greenhouse gases and their effects; c) water pollution from industries, hospitals, factories etc and thus impacting sustainability, d) Chemical plants, factories and refineries devastating the sustainability etc. Moreover, these days, the unacceptable managing of plastic waste has conducted plastic pollution, in both macroplastic and microplastic form, that has turned out to be pervasive in the environment. Plastic pollution has been discovered on coastlines and in surface waters, residues, soil, groundwater, indoor and outdoor air, drinking water and food. The students will do extensive research and come up with solutions so that the above-mentioned pollutions are reduced and pose positive impact to both human body, environment and overall the sustainability system.

What Will You Learn?

  • 1) Air Quality, Air Pollution and Is Impact on Sustainability
  • In this unit, the students will be brought in contact with air quality and air pollution along with their impacts on climate, human health, and sustainability. Students will learn in detail about air pollution, for example, how some of the chemical pollutants go through chemical and physical processes to form polluted air that reflect sunlight and have an overall effect on the climate and thus sustainability.
  • 2) Greenhouse Gases and Impacts
  • This unit is basically designed to understand causes of “Green House” and as a result to the destruction of the Ozone layer to such a level that will raise sharply cancer in human and animals. Moreover, the unit will teach the students to study and research on the disruption of the ocean’s food chain, intrusion of industrial and agricultural toxic substances into human food chain in sub-surface water level that cannot be cleaned.
  • 3) Water Pollution and Remedies
  • Basically, this unit talks about the incidence of emerging or recently recognized pollutants in our water resources that is of great concern to the health and safety of the consuming public and sustainability. Students after learning this unit will get an idea about the very popular remediation techniques to purify the water and reuse the treated water so that they know how to contribute for the future.
  • 4) Chemical Pollutions in different ways affecting Sustainability
  • The unit helps the students to understand that Chemical pollution has been identified “Planetary boundary” for which continued impacts could grind down the strength of ecosystems and humanity. Since Earth has a finite capacity for chemical pollution, to control it is very important for the future generation. This is basically discussed in this unit.
  • 5) Plastic Pollution destroying sources of drinking water as well as oceans.
  • This unit basically concentrates on the “The World Economic Forum” that envisages that by 2050 plastic waste in the oceans will overshadow the fish. Students will understand that this is a gigantic problem for marine life as a variety of animals either get entangled in plastic waste or else mistake it for food and ingest it. The unit will also enlighten on the awareness of people to limit their usage of plastic..

Course Outline PDF

A. Air Quality, Air Pollution and Is Impact on Sustainability
• This unit describes that air quality, and its emission sources are relentlessly linked to its impacts on climate, human health, and ecosystems, including agriculture. • The unit clarifies to students that air pollutants cause human health and ecosystem impacts at the community to provincial scale, whereas some of these air pollutants, such as ozone, are also effective at gripping solar radiation and warming the climate. • The unit facilitates to the students to the link between air quality and sustainability by introducing to them the three key considerations (1) mix of emissions, (2) lifetime, and (3) benefits and trade-offs.

B. Greenhouse Gases and Impacts
• This unit demonstrates about the gradual global warming for various reasons which results in to “the Green House” effects. • Students in this unit will learn about the possibilities of increased average global temperatures that might be good enough to shift agricultural production areas, raise sea levels to flood coastal cities and disrupt national economies by early next century. • Along with that, this unit will help the students to learn about the threats caused by industrial gases to diminish the planet’s protective ozone shield.

C. Water Pollution and Remedies
• This unit concentrates on the study and identification of various pollutants like pharmaceuticals, hospital wastes, domestic wastes, industrial wastes, agricultural wastes etc. • The unit demonstrates the different ways through which surface water and sub-surface water get polluted by the above-mentioned pollutants that affect tremendously both human and aquatic lives and as a consequence loses the balance of sustainability. • Finally, the unit demonstrates some highly efficient technical methods for remediation of water pollution.

D. Chemical Pollutions in different ways affecting Sustainability
• This unit demonstrates that despite bringing immense benefits to society, chemicals, during their lifecycle, may change into severe pollutants that possibly harms humans and ecosystems. • This also illustrates that chemical pollution has now been recognized as one of the “planetary boundaries” • Besides, the unit describes as a first step toward a global understanding of chemical pollution; then teaches the students the on-going contribution to sound management of chemicals. • Furthermore, it emphasizes on major gaps and challenges, and delivers preliminary thoughts on areas of interest, prospects and key aspects that may be considered in future developments helping sustainability.

E. Plastic Pollution destroying sources of drinking water as well as oceans.
• This unit describes that even the richest countries of the world cannot control widespread fires, deadly flooding due to a global warming of just 1.1 degree Celsius. • The unit also demonstrates the ways to curb carbon emissions as much as possible through different ways by 2100.
