Current university students and recent graduates who aspire to become sustainability leaders in politics and business are encouraged to attend the C2C Fellows Sustainability Leadership Workshop for the Southeast, a regional weekend training workshop to be held at UTC on October 26-28.
Training in communication, entrepreneurship, environmental and climate science, media, raising capital, and other critical topics will be available at the event, which will be directed by Dr. Eban Goodstein, an economist, scholar and Director of the Bard Center for Environmental Policy, and Dean of the Bard MBA in Sustainability.
The UTC Department of Interior Design is sponsoring the workshop.
In the effort to battle challenges such as global warming, population growth, and food production, it is important to grow leaders in sustainability efforts according to Sarah Boykin, UTC faculty sponsor, facilitator, and coordinator for the workshop.
“Addressing these challenges is not the work of a year, of a presidential term, or of a decade. It is the work of a generation,” Boykin said. “C2C Fellows workshops are designed to engage students and recent graduates who have leadership ambition, and provide them with knowledge, skills, courage, and a powerful, ongoing network, to help lead a global revolution in implementing sustainable, context-based solutions.”
