Sustainability Science webinar description (note: SCC = Sustainability Curriculum Consortium):

Vanessa Levesque and Thad Miller headlined SCC's first webinar focusing on sustainability science.  Thad led off with a presentation introducing how he and other leaders in the field conceptualize sustainability science, as he details in his book Reconstructing Sustainability Science.  Attendees learned about the origins of sustainability science, how the space has evolved, and the extent to which it can distinguished from other perspectives on sustainability.

Vanessa then presented a case study of how some guiding concepts of sustainability science have informed a mid-level Sustainability Methods class at UNH.   She talked about which guiding concepts she chose to focus on, how she uses those concepts to structure the content of the course, her struggles in finding undergraduate-level resources focused on those topics, and how she is having her students create a Sustainability Methods Reader as part of an open pedagogy approach to develop the resources needed to teach these topics.
