Educating future change agents Higher education as a motor of the sustainability transformation (EdFCA) Sustainability Education Research in North America When: March 18-20, 2020 Where: School of Sustainability, Arizona State University Who: ~15 of the leading scholars on Sustainability Education in North America Objectives: 1. Build personal/social relationships and a community of scholars 2. Identify a formal home for an institutionalized network of sustainability education research 3. Publish a position paper on current state and future directions of sustainability education research Description: Sustainability education has been a growing field of research yet it is being held back for a lack of a scholarly community, particularly in North America. Leveraging the conclusion of the Educating Future Change Agents project, we are organizing a workshop where we have invited the leading scholars on sustainability education from North America to come to ASU. This workshop is intended to be an inflection point in the field, changing it from a set of dispersed and isolated efforts, to a more coherent and constructive field of research.
