How can we meet the needs of the present without compromising the needs of future generations?
Educating for Sustainability
How can we meet the needs of the present without compromising the needs of future generations?Meeting present needs has huge impacts on the environment, the economy, and society at large. Sustainability issues affect students in multiple ways and have implications for every discipline and major. Global climate changes increasingly affect not only the regional environment we live in, but the food we eat, the jobs available to us, the places we live, the diversity of our neighborhoods, and more. Though discourse around sustainability can often lean toward doom and gloom, there is a lot students and teachers can do to make a positive difference.
Join us for a faculty panel sponsored by the Department of Sustainability and the Center for Teaching Excellence this Friday for discussion and sharing strategies for integrating sustainability into your class. Includes a free lunch.
This is part of the Blue Ridge Project workshop series on sustainability in higher education. Blue Ridge Project participants will be eligible for a research grant upon completion of the workshop series and will receive a certificate from the CTE. Workshops span the 2019-2020 academic year (Fall 2019 & Spring 2020). All workshops will include a free lunch. Look forward to a concluding celebration on Earth Day in April 2020.
