Rob_Plastow_photoDespite over 30 years of campaigns, political struggle and educational programmes, environmental degradation has only increased and time is running out. Education has a key role in changing this trajectory. However, much of mainstream education for sustainable development (ESD) in universities fails to address the ideological faults in current sustainability thinking. So while much of ESD is necessary it is ultimately insufficient.After examining current debates in ESD this seminar will share how several innovative projects at the Penryn campus are leading the way in responding to this educational challenge.Everyone is welcome, no need to book!Please ensure you are on the lookout for the 2014-2015 seminar programme. Future sessions include :
