Reaching Beyond the Green Population
May 15 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDTFree
The world of sustainability offers something for everyone. Sadly many people on campus assume sustainability is just for environmentalists. Sustainability students, faculty, and staff would love to reach a broader audience, but how? This webinar will explore ways to expand the conversation, to engage in conversations that are interdisciplinary and intersectional. There will be a special emphasis on reaching students who do not always come to sustainability events–LGBTQ people, first generation college students, students who are working class, and religious students.
