Curriculum Workshop on Sustainability

September 23, 2017,
9:30am to 5:00pm

Open to: Any faculty who register ahead of time (see below)


Learn how to incorporate sustainability into your course! All disciplines welcome and no prior experience required.

Berkeley's core mission--teaching, research and public service--provides an opportunity to use the campus as a learning laboratory for environmental issues and sustainability. This workshop will help instructors:

  • brainstorm ideas for incorporating sustainability principles into a wide range of curricular areas--from art history to literature to gender studies to environmental science,
  • explore expanded definitions of sustainability, and 
  • leave with concrete, creative ways to help engage your students around important sustainability principles

Following the workshop, participants will be invited to develop a course module on sustainability and will receive $700 to use for materials or student support. They will also have an opportunity to share their work and what they have learned at a spring showcase event.

For more information and to register for this workshop, please visit the Berkeley Sustainability and Energy website or email

Registration deadline: September 8, 2017.
