Next Level Conversations - Curriculum & Community Engagement

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this session, you’ll hear silo-breaking updates from peers leading on climate justice through universities’ curriculum design and collaborative work to address issues affecting communities well-being. In constructive presentations, experts in the field will share their experience at the cutting edge of trends - and why you should follow up to implement these action steps on your campus/in your organization. After hearing what’s new across the field, you’ll have an opportunity right away to start digging deeper by joining a smaller, peer-to-peer conversation with the experts on the topic of your choice. Can’t pick just one? There will also be an opportunity to book 1-1 or small group time with the presenters during tomorrow’s open meeting space or times throughout the next week. Topics include:
Topic 1: Educating the Next Generation of Sustainable Investment Leaders: Starting and Managing a Student-Managed Investment Fund
Topic 2: Betting on Social Progress: Breckinridge and the Social Progress Imperative
Topic 3: Campus-Community Partnerships on Climate Action: Applications of the EPIC model
Topic 4: Reinforcing Resilience: Going beyond traditional hazard assessments to bolster adaptive capacity
