ELP 550 Leadership for Sustainability

Students review, analyze, and apply approaches to sustainability leadership through collaborative, holistic, experiential learning. Key themes explored include the meaning of sustainability leadership; approaches, strategies, and skills used by sustainability leaders; whole systems thinking and design; the role of eco-spiritual values and Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) in sustainability leadership; and the importance of collaboration, creativity, relationships, and reflection. Students apply these concepts directly to a sustainability leadership challenge at the Learning Gardens Laboratory.
