Join SSF and the National Council for Science and the Environment on July 19 for a free webinar that will discuss the importance of systems thinking when applied to the built environment and the status of university sustainability educational programs to prepare the workforce of the future.

Event Description: 
Systems thinking and a sustainability framework can serve to effectively guide investment in natural, built, cyber, and social infrastructure. The trifecta of science, business and education working together, presents an opportunity for infrastructure to be built, rebuilt, maintained or upgraded to meet standards of sustainability.
 
Innovation in all fields of natural sciences, engineering, computing, social sciences, and education working with business and government offers great potential to apply systems thinking to maximize co-benefits and meet society’s resilience needs.
 
Join SSF and the National Council for Science and the Environment in an important discussion on systems thinking applied to the built environment and the status of university sustainability educational programs to prepare the workforce of the future. The webinar is a lead up to the 2018 NCSE National Conference and Global Forum on Science, Policy, and the Environment and will include a report out from the NCSE Census Report on Sustainability Programs in Higher Education in the United States Today.
