Recycling Culture: Environmentalism Made in Germany

Germany is often hailed as a world leader in environmentalism in the American news. Germany’s sustained environmentalist practices rely not only on laws and business incentives, they have also been shaped by and continue to create a culture of environmentalism. This course will unpack environmentalist culture in Germany by examining its current expressions, its sources in the past, and its stake in the future, while comparing these findings to US attitudes toward the environment. Taught in English.
