AASHE has released Sustainability Curriculum in Higher Education: A Call to Action (http://www.aashe.org/files/A_Call_to_Action_final%282%29.pdf ). As a follow-up to the AASHE Summit on Sustainability in the Curriculum held in San Diego in February, the Call to Action lays out nearly forty recommendations for action and four major strategic initiatives including establishing a faculty fellows program, developing regional centers, leveraging assessment requirements, and creating a Collaborative for Sustainability Curriculum Change.
Now what? A number of the recommendation can be carried out by individuals and groups on a campus and they should be moved forward as soon as possible. At AASHE we are actively discussing what actions we should undertake and how to do so. Reports of campus successes, lessons learned, and ideas for action are all welcome in this thread as we move the conversation forward to action.
AASHE would like to thank the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment for support in developing the Forums, and recognize and thank the organizations below as official Campus Sustainability Discussion Forums Supporters:
