The Journey of Global Commodities:  

Coconut, Higher Education, and Cell Phones, Coffee, Commercial Compost 

 

Students of PSU's Advanced Global Political Ecology Class (ELP 548) invite you to take a journey with them to explore and critique how the material and immaterial wealth of the world become commodities, and how we might renegotiate that relationship for a more sustainable and just outcome. There will be a particular focus on higher education and the mighty coconut.
