learning about sustainability: on creating courses for Kauai

sus courses at KCC

Can't recall more fun than conceiving effective methods for communicating the scope of what we're learning about sustainability...and shaping this into accessible short-courses!

That's been my focus for the the past several months, and I'm delighted to report that the inaugural learning opportunities will launch in 3 weeks at Kauai Community College through the Office of Continuing Education & Training (OCET).

Fortunately, I've had some practice with previous seminars for Kauai leaders, yet this field is advancing so rapidly that it's truly challenging and inspiring to sum up what we're learning, especially regarding the challenges facing this small rural island.

For all learners, there are 3 courses, including Intro to Sustainability (2 hours), Sustainability Thinking (10 weeks), and Sustainability for Households (3 hours).

And, especially for leaders, there are 3 courses, including Applied Sustainability on Kauai (full-day), Sustainability for Managers, and Sustainability Leadership (both are half-day).

Get the OCET Fall 2009 catalog here, and go here to register.

I'm excited to tryout this new material, and certainly looking forward to this opportunity to extend and expand our island conversation about sustainability!
