What you'll learn in this career training:

Look beyond the ‘green’ hype, get the deeper details on what the hell sustainability is and how it relates to professional practice and our personal lives. We address the ways in which we can all help achieve it. 
 
The hotly contested term ‘sustainability’ has come to mean different things to different people, but the original concept is all about social, economic and environmental sustainability – a pretty awesome aspiration that needs to be better understood. This class explores the historical and contemporary underpinnings of the concept and approach that is sustainability. 

Join us for a small group class on the fascinating and fundamentally important world of social and environmental sustainability, learn the mechanisms for busting the green myth, combating greenwashing and uncovering ways of practicing that embrace holistic approaches to sustainability.

About the Workshop

This is a lunchtime workshop that runs for 1.5 hours and is held at the Centre for Social Innovation. All our classes are small group sessions for maximum participation and experience. This session is part of the Sustainability Curriculum Track at the Un-School for Disruptive Design and can also be taken as a ono-on-one mentoring session.
