Did you know?
  • Dr. Biro’s course on The Politics of Water, first taught in 2003-04, was the first of its kind in Canada
  • He uses simulations in a variety of courses to give students "hands-on" experiences of large-scale political issues, from negotiating global rules for dealing with climate change or regulating global water trade, to running US Presidential election campaigns
  • All his environmental courses are based on this question, from historian Donald Worster: “How, in the remaking of nature, do we remake ourselves?”
