The course project will be a critique and application of the Genuine Progress Indicator (GPI), arguably a more complex and inclusive ecological measure of progress and well being than the current measures being used to characterize economic and social well-being such as Gross Domestic Product and the Human Development Index.
The following article is an example of a comprehensive application of GPI and can serve as the basis of your own examination of this approach to achieving sustainable development:
Hamilton, Clive, 1999, “The genuine progress indicator methodological developments and results from Australia”, Ecological Economics, Vol. 30, pp. 13-28.
The major written paper for the course asks you to consider the following:
(a) keeping in mind course concepts and lecture materials;
(b) supported by authoritative materials you have found on your own; and
(c) offering your own informed opinion;
(1) critique the GPI’s approach to achieving a sustainable society;
(2) by incorporating some of the issues and recommendations described in the documentary The End of Poverty;
(3) along with environmental concerns associated with the global village that we will be discussing in class;
(4) to make a thoughtful and convincing argument for or against the utility of applying the GPI to any place or location of your choosing.
The written project consists of an essay of approximately 2000 words that clearly and concisely presents your arguments and conclusions regarding the usefulness of applying this ecological measure to help achieve sustainable development.
GENERAL COURSE POLICIES
It is the responsibility of the student to submit all work in a timely enough manner so that all deadlines are met and that any submissions, attachments or emails, are both openable and readable. You can do this by checking your ‘sent’ folder in your email application, opening it and ensuring that your files have indeed been sent and are readable. Any submissions that cannot be opened will receive late penalties until the instructor receives a submission that can be evaluated.
Any work submitted for grading must conform to a recognized referencing and bibliographic format such as APA and MLA. The final written content will be judged according to the quality of (a) the research effort; (b) writing, referencing and presentation styles; and (c) the general content and organization of your essay (including the coherency, breadth and originality of your discussion and conclusions) and, of course, the relevance of your report to the topic.
Ensure that all requirements of the project are satisfied as detailed in the project outline and during class discussions and workshop sessions.
Always include at the beginning of your essay a title page with your name, student number, course number and title, instructor’s name and the title of your project.
