Educating for a Sustainable Future: Mobilizing Higher Ed for the Climate Century
September 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
How universities can work together to teach sustainability principles and practice across the curriculum, for a new generation of students
Students, faculty and administrators are increasingly concerned that a university education prepare its graduates for a world where sustainability is a profound concern for our careers, our civic engagement, and our daily lives.
In this event, representatives from four universities will discuss the ways they are changing their institutions’ curricula and practices to provide a quality sustainability education. How can we meet the needs of both those students who are most dedicated to sustainability, and those who would never think to take a class with an environmental theme? How do we recognize and scale up successes? And how can educational institutions learn from each other, while still catering to the unique needs of their student bodies and communities?
