Workshop: Sense and Sustainability - Educating for a Low Carbon World

Come to a fast paced briefing and dialogue with Ken Webster

Monday 25 January 2010, 4.30pm–6.30pm
Alternative Technology Centre

Education for Sustainable Development

  • Find out why Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) as ‘guilt management’ is counter  productive and a disconnect with any authentic  sustainability.
  • Why it’s not all about process and that ‘frameworks for thinking’ matter (and make our job easier).
  • Why we need to work alongside innovative business and local government. The ‘closed loop’ or circular economy is exciting product designers, industrialists, architects, community enterprises and municipal or regional governments.
  • Find out how to engage the positive and make sense of sustainability.

Ken argues that ESD should draw from and illuminate the aims and aspirations of businesses who adopt these ‘living systems’ models — the focus is design and human intention.

Coffee/tea and vegetarian buffet snacks available.
