Sustainable Entrepreneurship In Island Nations And Territories
EPS3533 Sustainable Entrepreneurship in Island Nations and Territories
4 Elective Abroad CreditsIsland nations and territories face particular problems with respect to resource usage and environmental impact given their geographic isolation and boundaries. While this is true of all island nations and territories, based on natural resources, policies, and other factors different islands are often faced with varying degrees of environmental challenges in key areas. The purpose of this course is to learn about the challenges faced by a particular island and investigate possible solutions that may be viable for that nation or territory given their specific policies and constraints. The initial offering will focus on waste in Jamaica, which is currently a significant problem for that country. Students will learn about the waste management system, major sources of waste on the island, current policies and solutions that are being investigated and develop initial proposals for business opportunities that may help with the problem.
