This is an interactive workshop for students, faculty AND staff to learn about the social pillar of sustainability through active engagement in case studies and connection to local opportunities.
Are you interested in social equity? Did you know it is one of the three pillars of Sustainability? Come to this event to learn more about how sustainability provides a framework to address social equity issues. You will also learn about how social equity is a pillar and a driver for sustainability.
This workshop will include case studies that provide a glimpse of this component of sustainability, will provide an overview of ways to measure social impact and sustainability, discuss the transdisciplinary nature of these topics (how policy, culture, economics, government, policy, education, health, environment, non-profits, for-profits come together), and present opportunities for students, faculty and staff to get involved in the social aspects of sustainability through multiple centers, departments and divisions at Davidson College and with our community.
See you there!
