Overview

Globalization & Sustainability

The rapid growth of the global economy raises fundamental questions: How does trade and politics affect development and the environment? What are the effects of free trade and the rise of multi-national corporations on local cultures? What are the effects of the 'clash of cultures' produced by international travel, migration, and new social, collaborative technologies that send film, books, television, music and other 'proprietary' content spinning around the world instantly? Is globalization environmentally sustainable? This course is designed to examine these and other questions and to provide students with the skills to analyze the day-to-day choices raised by globalization in an increasingly interconnected world. This course is offered through OntarioLearn by the host college, Algonquin college.
