Going into ENVR 430, I had very little idea of what to expect and was concerned that this was a freshly redesigned course, little did I know it would be one of the most unique, and entertaining (I think you can guess why) courses I've enrolled in. This course truly felt fit for a final year, it was rather encompassing, touching on a lot of the subjects and issues I had learned about in past courses as well as on my own time, but much more in-depth. The inclusion of solutions to these issues is something that I'm surprised isn't core to more environmentally focused courses, it's usually all about the problem with a sprinkling of what has to be done. It is refreshing to be able to discuss the actions that will lead to change and has made my knowledge of such subjects more well-rounded. But what I think this course has shown the most, both in its content and the participation of others, is the value of different perspectives in science.

Thank you for your post! I think the point you raised about solutions is so important. This course is one of the first ones I have taken that required us to devise our own solutions to environmental problems. As we have learned, it is much easier to talk about problems than to try and find answers!
Hey Tyson! I was really scared when I first enrolled in this class too! I am glad that we have all had such an amazing change to grow and share our ideas as students!
I could not agree more with the value in seeing solutions and the value of different perspectives in science
Hi Tyson, as a graduating student I agree that this is a really great course to wrap up and tie in a variety of classes that I have taken during my time at UBC
I agree Tyson. I also think that the final project was such a great option instead of a traditional final and it was so lovely to get to work with you!
Hello Tyson, I agree with you 100% regarding how you appreciate how this course touches on the interventions we can take! Best of luck to you if you're graduating this year :)
I agree with you Tyson, I think this is as the best way to close out the last year and such a statement really touches my heart.
