NRLA Community values  

Natural Resources and Community Values - ANTH 581

In this NRLA track, instructor Brian Tilt will guide you through examining natural resource management from a cultural perspective, focusing on the values that drive decision-making. Drawing on case studies from the U.S. and abroad, the track focuses on three central questions:

•   What role does culture play in shaping people's interactions with the natural environment?
•   How do individuals and communities balance different objectives, such as economic development, community well-being and resource stewardship?
•   How can social-science theory and methods be applied to help communities find sustainable solutions to the problems they face?

Register today and view the other tracks offered this year during Week 1 and Week 2.
