  • The global challenge of climate change demands new paradigms of leadership that prioritize interdisciplinary solutions and the voices of marginalized communities. Universities are uniquely situated to lead the way. We will explore ways that a design thinking process can build a visible culture of sustainability at the hyper-local campus scale and drive climate action across academics, governance, and operations. Aligning climate action with existing priorities creates synergies, especially where stakeholders may already be stretched thin. Learn how a design thinking approach facilitates this type of cross-disciplinary work.

    Learning Outcome 1: Map out ways to restructure curriculum, programming, or the physical campus in order to create and encourage a culture of climate action.

    Learning Outcome 2: Identify and learn how to engage core participants (students, faculty, university leadership, operations) in aligning initiatives on wellness, diversity and inclusion, and environmental responsibility as part of strategic planning or infrastructure decisions.

    Learning Outcome 3: Characterize the difference between scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions.

    Learning Outcome 4: Create a strategy for reducing scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions on campus through hyper local campaigns and on-campus activism.
