MODULE OVERVIEW

In our last week (before your final exam), we’ll focus on what people have done to protect the environment and respond to environmental health threats.  The award-wining film you’ll watch, A Fierce Green Fire (Links to an external site.),  shows different ways people have worried about the environment (at times focused on natural spaces instead of human health, for example) and different strategies they have used.  We want you to learn about the history of environmental activism in the United States. We also want you to think about the kinds of environmental stewardship and activism that you support and could become involved in.
