Green Courses

At LAVC we are committed to environmental literacy. Environmental literacy and sustainability is the ability to think critically about the enviornmental, social and economic dimensions of human-environment interactions, to make informed decisions, and to take responsibility for the stewardship of ecosystems in order to meet the present needs without compromising the needs of future generations.
