Sustainability Curriculum Consortium (SCC) Webinar

On December 5 at 1pm (EST), Prof. Ashford and I will be giving a webinar on our revised textbook as part of the Sustainability Curriculum Consortium (SCC) webinar series. During the webinar we will explore the central ideas covered in the textbook and discuss how we teach such a comprehensive range of theories, subjects, and approaches to advancing sustainable development.

To pre-register, go to:

Chapter 13 – Pathways to Sustainability

We are pleased to be able to release the final chapter of our new textbook which focuses on policy interventions to encourage a sustainable transformation in industrial and industrializing economies. We have also released the index to provide you with a sense of the issues that are covered throughout the textbook.

In the coming weeks, we will begin to release the presentations we use to teach the material in the textbook at MIT and Virginia Tech. These presentations will be shared via Google Slides. We hope that this additional material will hep others incorporate the textbook material into their courses. We would also be happy to work with anyone who is willing to take on the challenge of teaching the entire textbook as one course. If the scheduling works, we would be happy to provide a guest lecture or two on those subjects that fall outside of the instructor’s expertise. Both Nicholas and I support each other in this way, and we would be happy to extend this courtesy to others.

Revised Edition 2018

This fall the revised edition of our textbook will be published by Routledge. As we approach the release date, we will start to upload information and teaching resources related to the book, which has been significantly revised and reduced in length to make it more conducive for the classroom.
