Education for Sustainable Development Workshop 1: Sustainability as Interdependence

This ESD workshop is open to all UFV faculty, staff, students and administrators. In this workshop you will:
• Explore concepts of sustainability and sustainable development through the principle of interdependence
• Develop a collective understanding of an “ethics of care”
• Reflect on personal connection to place
• Create a collaboratively developed definition of sustainability specific to UFV

The workshop includes a light lunch. Some activities will be held outdoors, so please dress accordingly. Participation is limited to 20 people.

Register through Teaching and Learning:

The two workshops in this series will offer insight into what Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) is and why it is crucial to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. They are experiential and will help participants to articulate what sustainability means and the ways it is intricately connected with issues of social and ecological justice. Each is a stand-alone workshop, but faculty who complete both will receive a certificate of completion issued by Teaching and Learning and the Office of Sustainability at UFV.
