But I may not be spending quite as much time here as I have been. I started an online course, Introduction to Sustainability, from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign through coursera.com.
From the course syllabus: "This course introduces the academic approach of Earth Systems and explores how today’s human societies can endure in the face of global change, ecosystem degradation, and resource limitations. The course focuses on key knowledge areas including population, ecosystems, global change, energy, agriculture, water, environmental economics and policy, ethics, and cultural history."
There is still time to join the class if you are interested, and there is no fee. Check it out by aiming your browser at https://class.coursera.org/sustain-002/class/index.
It looks like a very interesting course. I'm very fascinated by the selection of free courses on that site. Thanks for sharing the link and the idea with us, and good luck!
Good luck to you; sounds like an interesting course. Thanks for the link; I'll definitely explore it.
Way to go. Learning new things is always exciting. Good luck with your new project and I'll be waiting to read your hubs.
