Summer 2019 Global Teacher Seminar: Global Environmental Issues: The Problems, Solutions, and Potential Outcomes

 

Friday, June 07, 2019, 9:00AM - 5:00PM

     

This weeklong institute aims to inform K-12 teachers on environmental issues related to the natural resources of various countries, including Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East. The ecological footprint of various countries will be examined and how each impacts these resources and its people, including biodiversity, forests, wildlife, water, air, soil and the related economics and policy.

The seminar will deepen teachers’ understanding of the different environmental issues and challenges facing society now and in the future, and through pedagogical training enable the incorporation of this new content into their curricula. Some countries will be used as case studies to examine particular problems, how these countries are attempting to address the problems, and an analysis of the potential outcomes.

The seminar is organized by the East Asian Studies Center (EASC) in partnership with the Center for African Studies (CAS), Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS), Center for Slavic and East European Studies Center (CSEES), and Middle East Studies Center (MESC) with support from the U.S. Department of Education Title VI Grants.
