Educating for Sustainability energized faculty, staff, students and administrators to infuse environmental sustainability into the curriculum, and thereby broaden Penn State’s capacity to address significant challenges related to energy and the environment. Because these challenges require assessing ethical consequences and communicating effectively with the public and policy makers, as well as competencies for conducting scientific research and creating successful design solutions, this conference was relevant to a broad audience.
Educating for Sustainability was open to Penn State faculty, staff, students and administrators at no charge; however, space is limited and advanced registration is required.
