Contemplative Approaches to Sustainability in Higher Education : Theory and Practice, Hardback Book

Contemplative Approaches to Sustainability in Higher Education : Theory and Practice Hardback

Edited by Marie Eaton, Holly J. Hughes, Jean (The Evergreen State College, USA) MacGregor

Description

How do we foster in college students the cognitive complexity, ethical development, and personal resolve that are required for living in this "sustainability century"?

Tackling these complex and highly interdependent problems requires nuanced interdisciplinary understandings, collective endeavors, systemic solutions, and profound cultural shifts.

Contributors in this book present both a rationale as well as a theoretical framework for incorporating reflective and contemplative pedagogies to help students pause, deepen their awareness, think more carefully, and work with complexity in sustainability-focused courses.

Also offering a variety of relevant, timely resources for faculty to use in their classrooms, Contemplative Approaches to Sustainability in Higher Education serves as a key asset to the efforts of educators to enhance students' capacities for long-term engagement and resilience in a future where sustainability is vital.
