Are you interested in contributing to the next Sustainability Action Plan to guide the University’s actions over the next 5 years?

Do you have an interest in incorporating educational opportunities and sustainability in your university? This would include education broadly understood within an Education for Sustainable Development framework (i.e., formal, non-formal, and informal education).

Perhaps you are interested in education to promote sustainable livelihoods and lifestyles on campus (and in particular SDG 12 on Responsible/Sustainable Consumption and Production)?

If so, Working Group #2 on Education is looking for members from across the campus (including Federated Colleges) with knowledge and skills that will help inform Education actions for the University’s next Sustainability Action Plan.

The working group leads have prepared a list of potential items to consider and help guide discussion:

  • How the campus can mobilize existing resources for sustainability initiatives (a question of building capacity)
  • Processes to become aware of those resources and how to experiment with these to make best use of them
  • Light-weight initiatives that organize and make use of underutilized human, natural, physical, and financial resources in new ways for sustainability
  • New forms of networking/social capital and living laboratories across campus that are mutually reinforcing


Potential goals for the working group: 

  1. Practical projects allow for immediate action and create resources for sustainability initiatives over the long term.
  2. Projects that have straightforward leads within the university and federated colleges tied to the knowledge and skills involve and can mobilize volunteers from across campus.
  3. Supports the University of Regina’s commitment to Responsible Production and Consumption (SDG12) by focusing on how we are generating and using diverse resources.
  4. Creates an integrative campus culture of sustainability that crosses silos.

Meetings

The Education working group will have its 1st meeting on Tuesday, May 25 at 10:00 a.m
