Greening the Heart of Postsecondary Education
August 2 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDTFree
What does “greening the heart of education” look like at the postsecondary level? What are the big questions we must pose — and answer — if colleges and universities are to contribute to safeguarding the viability of the biosphere? What can different stakeholders do? This webinar will present the rationale for transformative changes at the heart of what we do at the postsecondary level, especially in curriculum, in how we teach, and in institutional behavior.
