Subject outline

Students examine the political framework in which organizations, agencies, and individuals for whom natural history is important operate in Australia today. They do this from two perspectives:

  1. Examination of the historical development of agencies, structures and processes in determining land management outcomes in Victoria; 
  2. Exploration of how political and institutional structures affect the way we value, access and use nature.

Students analyse various political perspectives on nature-based issues of current importance and formulate personal responses to these.
