Food, water and shelter are the three pillars of a livable world. The choices we make to secure them involve the complex interplay of politics, economics and technology. This year's Global Studies Summer Institute will examine the concept of sustainability-- how societies are attempting to meet their immediate needs in ways that build community and conserve the environment for future generations. Participants will explore options for a sustainable future from the perspectives of various stakeholders: the scientist, the CEO, the policymaker, the farmer, etc. Educators will find content and resources applicable across the curriculum, from science to social studies. Join us for an interdisciplinary look at preserving the world your students will inherit.
