Session Submission Type: Workshop Proposal

Session Description

Teaching principles of and decision making for sustainability is challenging due to the systemic nature of sustainability. Participants will learn about teaching tools that enable the skills to facilitate sustainable transitions. Specific focus will be placed on two innovative methods: the strategic simulated ecosystem game Eco (2018) and the Sustainability Mindset Indicator (SMI, 2021). We will share our experiences teaching with these and provide examples of impact on student learning that showcase how these tools can be used to accelerate strategic thinking and mind-set change. We will collect other approaches and methods to generate a toolbox for sustainability teaching.
