Call for Applications: Sustainability Education Fellows

AAA is a participating member of the Disciplinary Associations’ Network for Sustainability. This network catalyzes education for sustainable development. From the famous 1987 Brundtland Commission, the most common definition of sustainable development is “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” Education for sustainable development was defined at the sustainable development world summit as “enabling people to develop the knowledge, values and skills to participate in decisions…, that will improve the quality of life now without damaging the planet for the future.” Sustainability is about creating healthy ecosystems, healthy communities and healthy economies.

Contribute to a sustainable future at the national level! Apply to be a DANS Sustainability Education Fellow. As a Fellow, you will be an important part of the national trend toward sustainability in higher education. You will spend 4-5 hours each week working with your professional association and other related disciplinary and higher education associations, helping them collect and share quality sustainability information with their members. Fellows will serve as mentors to others doing sustainability work on college campuses. Their role is to nurture, connect, assist and inspire the very important but often challenging work being done by disconnected individuals across the country. The vital role played by the Fellows is crucial to continuing the momentum for education for a sustainable future.

If you are interested in serving as a DANS Sustainability Education Fellow, please consider submitting an application. Application review will begin August 1 for the 2008-2009 academic year.

Fellows will be encouraged to:
•Improve the collection and dissemination of sustainability related information,
•Promote collaborations on sustainability education and practices, and
•Develop training and pedagogical support for future fellows.

You can apply to be a Sustainability Education Fellow by sending an email to Steve Muzzy (smuzzy@secondnature.org). Steve will send you an application with more information. [DANS (www.aashe.org/dans)] is helping coordinate the fellows program and will be connecting the fellows across associations to create a collaborative higher education effort across academic disciplines.]
