The Sustainability in the Curriculum Community of Practice

and

Manchester Met Education Sustainable Development Steering Group

 

warmly invites you to the next meeting on

carbon literacy

Wednesday, 20th April from 2pm to 4pm in University Place (UoM), Room 6.206

 

Dr Chris Stone (MMU) and Lucy Millard (UoM) will discuss current and prospective activities relating to the Carbon Literacy Project: http://www.carbonliteracy.com/ .

 

Chris Stone will present an overview and evaluation assessment of an innovative ‘carbon literacy’ (CL) education and training programme delivered to undergraduate students studying MMU postgraduate degree programmes in 2014-15.  Lucy Millard will talk about initial plans for a carbon literacy accreditation scheme for staff at the UoM.

 

As is usual in these meetings there will be opportunities for discussion around the theme.

 

The Sustainability in the Curriculum Community aims to help share understandings and teaching ideas around sustainability education among interested staff and to inspire staff to critically and creatively engage with ways of integrating sustainability (social as well as environmental) into the curriculum.

 

If you would like to share your ideas/give a presentation/suggest a focus for a meeting we would love to hear from you.  The community meets on a Wednesday every month during semester time.
