FLP 2013 - Silent Sustainability

The Finger Lakes Project Workshop will be held on May 23-24, 2013.  This year's workshop will explore "silent sustainability", or the ways that sustainable behavior is invisibly embedded in the educational goals and operations at Ithaca College and in regional endeavors.  We seek to demonstrate that, more frequently, and without being overtly labeled as such, sustainability education and behaviors are part of how we think, teach, and do business.

The workshop is aimed at college-level faculty, staff, students, and local citizens who are interested in sustainability education.  The workshop provides opportunities to meet and make connections with others with similar interests.

For 2013, we'll include lectures and activities on the following topics:

  • Defining Sustainability
  • Invisible Sustainability at Ithaca College
  • Reports from Sustainability Mini-Grantees
  • Examples of Local "Silent Sustainability"
