This unit takes an holistic approach to the social and institutional context of the environmental sciences, examining environmental issues from the perspectives of government, industry, communities and individuals. Social research methods are explained and assessed; and the human dimensions (values, attitudes, behaviours) of environmental issues are examined. Tools and strategies for fostering environmentally sustainable behaviours, resolving environmental conflicts and disputes and participating effectively in decision-making processes are examined. Key themes will be developed and explored using case studies drawn from Australia and overseas.
