Join ISSP’s Greater St. Louis chapter on May 29th from 5:15pm - 6:30pm CT for a presentation and discussion on Why You Should Care About Sustainability Literacy In the Workplace.
Society needs to understand the significance and cause of human interaction on the degradation of the environment. To ensure people are armed with the right information to make the best possible decisions in their professions, we must educate our society on sound environmental, social, and financial reasoning. As education plays a crucial role in the adoption of sustainable development in society, we need to ensure people are sustainability literate. Sustainability literacy not only encompasses people’s knowledge of sustainability aspects, but their willingness to act on these issues. If we are expecting our world to change and incorporate sustainable development principles in their professional roles and personal lives, we must understand their level of knowledge and their willingness to act.
In this session, attendees will learn how to discuss sustainability literacy, methods currently in use to assess literacy levels, and results from an international assessment on student sustainability literacy. In addition, we will discuss possibilities to assess sustainability literacy in your workplace and different educational sources available to develop sustainability literacy.
Presenter: Brandon Verhoff
