What is sustainability? As practices devoted to the mindful tuning of human habitats to the freedoms and constraints of ecosystems, sustainability begins with the deployment of rhetorical practices for visualizing, mapping, narrating, and advocating specific and informed responses to the issues and problems of any given ecosystem. Such an ecological framework begins with this premise: each one of us must become responsible stewards of life on our planet, and human beings must learn to work together to guarantee a healthy, sane existence for all, today and in the future. Wikia's sustainable community action page builds on this assumption, but also further insists that over-specialization is part of the problem. "Sustainability isn't just something for experts," they say. Rather, sustainability is "about everyone's quality of life and we all have a part to play." In order to play, "non-experts" learn and deploy civic rhetorics to form communities of practice, or "sustainable identities." This course will review global definitions, concepts and increasingly noisy discourses of sustainability, and remix them toward practices of civic engagement. Students will form groups, work with the the Freshman Summer Institute, and compose with multimedia rhetorical tools to help remix sustainability rhetoric and browse for civic engagement opportunities in St. Petersburg and across the increasingly informatic biosphere.
