Sustainability and Resilience at Northeastern University
This open seminar explores sustainability and resilience efforts within the Northeastern community. The course provides opportunities for a diversity of Northeastern faculty, staff, and students to share their experiences engaging with sustainability planning, resource reductions, and preparing for future disruptions. Learning about the complex and dynamic waste systems, food systems, and energy systems provides insights on the challenges and opportunities for higher education to lead a just and equitable societal transformation toward a more sustainable and resilient future. Each weekly session will include a discussion with university leaders engaged in the topic.
