University Wide Module in Sustainability Maria Kirrane
The inclusive, university wide approach taken in Green Campus has been adopted to develop a university wide module on sustainability, through partnership and collaboration across all sectors of campus and beyond.
It has been developed freely by all participants involved in course and content development; participants from all schools of UCC, encompassing about 15 different disciplines, as well as numerous members of the Green Forum and the Green Campus committee, and key operations staff from Buildings and Estates. It is also provided freely to all participants enrolling. The module is open to students and staff of the university as well as the general public.
A fundamental focus of the development of the module was and is around sustainability citizenship – the course was titled ‘Putting education for sustainability in its place: put yourself in the Picture’.
The module will run for the third time in Semester 2 of 17/18 AY and further details on content and times can be found here.
