Teaching About Sustainability

Hi all -

I wanted to draw the upcoming application deadline for this workshop to your attention.
Systems, Society, Sustainability and the Geosciences 

July 24-26, 2012
Carleton College, Northfield, MN

Sustainability is a powerful theme for teaching about the environment and requires the integration of perspectives from science, economics, and society. This workshop will bring together undergraduate faculty from all disciplines who teach sustainability.  Our goal is to share successful strategies and materials and to identify areas in which new materials will strengthen students’ understanding of the underpinning geoscience.   We seek applicants from the sciences (including geosciences), social sciences, humanities, and engineering.

This workshop is open to 30 people (by application). Housing and meals during the workshop will be provided by the NSF funded InTeGrate STEP Center for the Geoscience.  There is no registration fee. The application deadline is April 20, 2012 and details can be found at

Please forward this announcement to interested colleagues.

Contact  David Gosselin (ddgosselin2@unl.edu) or  Cathy Manduca (cmanduca@carleton.edu) with questions.
