Shirli Bar-David, David Katoshevski, Amit Gross, Isaac A. Meir, Meidad Kissinger, Yaron Ziv, IsraelX

Uncover better solutions to help manage a wide range of environmental problems and challenges facing our world today.

Do you want to understand more about the environmental problems we currently face? Do you want to learn ways we can reduce the negative effects of these problems, and keep our environment more sustainable? If so, this course is for you.

In this multi-disciplinary course, we will discuss major challenges facing environmental protection efforts. In doing so, we'll bring together various aspects from three themes: Biological, Physical, and Human.

The Biological theme focuses on the importance of biodiversity and the actions we can take to conserve basic ecosystem functions. For example: reintroducing locally extinct key species and protecting agroecosystems.

Clean air and water resources, as elements of the Physical theme, are crucial to maintaining biodiversity and our basic life-support systems. We will explore methods for minimizing air and water pollution and their negative impacts.

The Human theme investigates how human development can be sustainable under the current pressures at local, regional, and global scales. Examples include water reuse, green building, and environmentally friendly technologies.

The course is designed and presented by six scientists, each of whom specializes in a different environmental aspect. The course uses video presentations, movies, exercises, assignments, and many additional sources to provide information and enrichment.

No previous knowledge on environmental issues is needed. Join us for a diverse and unique course and become a protector of the environment.
