Understanding Sustainability Through Transdisciplinary Narratives
July 31 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDTFree
The concepts of “more” and “better” drive social narratives about they kind of world we’re creating: a future of more stuff and strife, or one based on a better life. This webinar will explain sustainability in terms of these narratives and show how to use them as a framework for teaching sustainability and social justice across any discipline. Participants will receive resources describing activities and strategies to leverage the More and Better narratives as teaching tools.
