Resilience, Resolve, and Renewal: Redefining the 3Rs of Sustainability
September 29-30, 2017
Central College
Pella, Iowa

Sustainability is about more than “reduce-reuse-recycle,” about more than greening our individual choices. Now more than ever, those committed to sustainability must cultivate habits of civic engagement. This conference considers the politics of sustainability education, from our teaching, learning, and research to our institutional operations and individual acts of citizenship. How do we work locally and globally to restore our human and natural systems? How do we stay grounded in practices of personal reflection, even as we consider acts of public resistance? How do we redefine the 3Rs of Sustainability, striving for Resilience, Resolve, and Renewal, for ourselves and the world
