EJOLT is running an online course “Ecological Economics and Environmental Justice”, taught through civil society organisation (CSO) case studies across a broad range of topics with a particular focus on the theme of environmental justice.
It will run from mid/late January to mid/late May (tbc). This interactive online course takes place over sixteen weeks. It has been designed for activists interested in understanding and applying the tools of ecological economics and political ecology to their work, and for researchers of the sustainability sciences interested in the real world application of the concepts and methods of ecological economics and political ecology in the field of environmental justice. A fee to cover running costs will be charged. This will amount to approximately 160€,
The core text that will be used is Ecological Economics from the Ground Up, due to be published in December by Routledge.
The course will be taught in English, but assignments can be submitted in Spanish, French or Portuguese. The deadline for applications is December 15, 2012. For more information visit:http://www.ejolt.org/2012/04/online-course-ecological-economics-and-activism/.
