Why Join the GSELS Learning Network?
It is not an exaggeration to say that we are currently in the midst of a global crisis. Environmental degradation is rampant, species planet-wide are facing extinction, and climate change presents threats we are only beginning to understand.  As our students enter the public sphere, it is imperative that they be able to face the challenges ahead; faculty leadership is more crucial than ever at this time. 

 

GSELS Vision -  

Global Sustainability and Earth Literacy Studies acknowledges the interconnections and interdependence of the personal, social, economic, cultural, environmental, and political aspects of our world. Collaboratively, students, faculty, administrators, and staff explore the significance of human activity within an evolving Universe and Earth. Through shared leadership, this nurturing learning community facilitates the emergence of awareness, knowledge, skills and solutions necessary to create sustainable systems that support a healthy and just economy, society, culture and environment, while fostering values of Earth ethics, social justice, cultural diversity, and civic engagement.

 

 

GSELS Faculty and GSELS-designated courses will be listed on the  Earth Ethics Institute website.
