Week 1 Discussion

Understanding Environmental Sociology

This week we will begin to explore the field of environmental sociology. To help us understand this important field of study and get our conversations started, address the following in your response.

Identify one pressing present day environmental issue (social problem) that may make planning sustainably for the future a challenge. Examples may include global poverty, consumerism, and so forth.

Why do you think planning sustainably is a challenge? Explain with the help of at least two reasons.

Discuss five precautionary approaches we could take to mitigate the influence of these factors on efforts toward sustainability. Examples include chaining cultural norms regarding consumption, revamping traditions to avoid excess or consumption, and so forth.

What is the reality of your consumption?

What social context led you to make purchases or consume products?

What are the possible environmental and social impacts of your consumption patterns?

How do modern or affluent lifestyles influence trends in consumption?

Did purchases reflect wants or needs? Why or why not?

How might purchasing only for need influence environmental change?

The Social Organization of Convenience

Convenience is a major feature of the modern world that we inhabit. But what is the cost? Identify and list examples that illustrate the "social organization of convenience" (think beyond vehicles and select a less obvious example for your response).

Discuss whether there could conceivably be alternative forms of convenience that people would like and that would be better for the environment. If so, what would they be, and how would they need to work?

Conclude your discussion by using your selected example to examine the social factors (phenomenology, culture, politics, etc.) that might have to be overcome to change to a different form of convenience.
