About the Event
Part of an ongoing Wednesday Webinar Series interacting with local experts on sustainable solutions to climate change. STEM Clock Hours can be earned by registering for any two (or more!) webinars. In this webinar we will work with Urban Planners, Architects, Engineers, and Futurists to identify curriculum entry points for problem-based, place-based learning including a range of local, national, and international case studies for students to analyze and compare. In this informal and interactive learning exchange, we are going to be asking some intriguing questions. FOR EXAMPLE: Beyond individual green buildings and scattered EV charging stations, how can we engage our students as sustainable systems thinkers and long-range urban planners? What would success look like if we were to achieve 100% sustainability across all systems at the neighborhood scale right where our students live, work, and learn? When might this happen? Where are we on the trajectory? How can students gain skills in systems thinking and scenario planning to explore our choices, values, and actions today to achieve sustainability by 2050? What are the principles for a “just transition” from an extractive economy to a regenerative economy? How is my city’s 20-year comprehensive plan related to my curriculum standards? Should there be a requirement in a comprehensive plan for a climate action plan? Join us!
