Course Title: S028 Green Technology for Environmental Pollution Control
Duration: 2019.7.11-2019.7.26 (2 weeks)
Environmental pollution control using green technology is one of the sustainable ways, which could not only solve pollution, but also save energy and resources. The course uses multidisciplinary theories and methods to expound the relationship, connotation and principles between environment and sustainable development. To interpret the relationship between economic and social development with environmental protection, energy conservation and emissions reduction, China will be chosen as the case study, as the most populous and rapid urbanization process country. The development process of water resources, waste sector, soil reclamation, and air pollution control will be introduced in detail, and students will then understand the core factors that caused the shift from the industrial civilization development model to the modern ecological civilization.
Students in this course should be devoted in the lessons, including group discussion, study tour, and listening and answering questions. All of students have a chance to give a presentation on a certain topic in class.
