The Conference on Sustainability and International Education will explore the added value of international study programs in higher education, particularly related to the theme of sustainability.
During the conference, participants will be introduced to activities and pedagogies that EARTH uses in its study abroad programs to strengthen students’ understanding of sustainability, among other social ideals. Using real-life cases, we will look critically and collectively at educating about sustainability issues, including our food system, energy production and global transportation – exploring the economic, social and environmental impact of such human activities. Our goal is to grow students’ interest, critical engagement and alternative considerations – thus creating a profound and transformative learning experience.
The lively conference will feature active discussions and outdoor activities, including ones in which EARTH professors and staff will provide a taste of all EARTH offers to study abroad students who come to our campus, nearby enterprises and surrounding communities.
