Greening the Trades : Net Zero Curriculum for a Climate-Adapted Economy (E/SI)

May 1, 2024 11:30 - 12:30 Macleod Hall AView map

With Canada shifting to Net-Zero by 2050, our sector plays a pivotal role in leading this movement, in the way we educate future tradespeople, and the way they build, maintain, and even dismantle our infrastructure and the built environment. This shift in our infrastructure requires a shift in thinking and approaches to applied knowledge. ImpAct-Climate’s Faculty Training Modules, a collaborative, co-developed Open Education Resource supports trades educators in integrating Decolonizing and Greening into the practical and theoretical aspects of their trades. Come learn more from some of our module developers.

Stream: Leading Sustainability

This stream will examine how colleges and institutes can expand their leadership role in contributing to the SDGs and ensuring sustainability across multiple sectors. Sessions will be guided by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to include areas like curriculum development, solutions-oriented approaches to applied research, and designing smart green campuses. Sessions will also look at strategies that colleges and institutes are implementing to deliver a just and green transition to a net zero future.
