Addressing the climate emergency is a strategic priority for the Faculty of Education at UBC. Research, teaching, scholarship and community engagement on a range of areas that concern climate and sustainability is occurring across the Faculty. To better understand the work in this area undertaken by faculty colleagues, to create vibrant networks, and to explore issues and questions concerning future directions for work in these areas, Education faculty are invited to participate in the Faculty of Education Roundtable on Climate, Sustainability and Education.
The event will include guest speakers, as well an opportunity for participants to break into thematic roundtables for discussion. Lunch will be provided.
Possible discussion topics include:
- – climate justice
- – environmental education, health, and wellbeing
- – sustainable and equitable futures
- – place-based education
- – climate and migration
- – related interdisciplinary topics
- – implications for policy, research, community engagement, curriculum and instruction, action
