Integrating Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability into Existing Learning Experiences to Maximize Resources and Reach a Broader Audience

Virtual Eastern Standard Time Zone, GA

At James Madison University’s Institute for Stewardship of the Natural World, student engagement programs are designed to meet students where they are and demonstrate how environmental stewardship and sustainability can be connected to any academic discipline. Moving away from planning separate environmentally-focused programs and events and instead pursuing collaborative projects allows us to integrate environmental stewardship into other campus activities and reach a broader audience. In this online presentation, you will hear about how a new approach to an established partnership opened the door to introducing the Sustainable Development Goals to hundreds of students each semester in a way that is relevant, relatable, and replicable, and better reflects our learning outcome of “how environmental stewardship is and can be integrated into our lives.” Link to join + passcode in full event description.
