Facing environnemental issues : theories, concepts and tools Université Grenoble Alpes
Resource scarcity and other new environmental challenges have become more pressing in the last decades. A rising ecological consciousness now permeates political debates, economic policies and development projects, assessing the environmental footprint of human action at every scale. Social sciences have made a major input in the environmental debate by heavily contributing to the theoretical and practical shift from “the natural” to “the environmental”, by stressing the inherent political and social dimension of environmental issues, and by developing useful concepts (e.g. accessibility, vulnerability, resilience…). Facing Environmental Issues will be taught as a set of courses: a political ecology short and theoretical seminar will provide a theoretical approach, while more practical courses will present concrete development projects and tools, such as Community-Based Resource Management and Energy Transition.
