Core Area Team positions have been filled. We are currently seeking Network Collaborators.
We are looking for faculty, lecturers, and staff with experience in teaching climate change, climate justice, carbon neutrality/greenhouse gas emissions reductions, and/or sustainability to different audiences from any disciplinary or interdisciplinary perspective. The pilot network will be comprised of four area teams. Each area team will be comprised of faculty, lecturers, and/or teaching staff from several CSU and UC campuses who will:
• Share information about their campus’s and their own relevant education and engagement practices.
• Collaboratively organize and participate in a one-two day workshop with other area team members in Winter or Spring 2017.
• Videotape a 15-minute presentation for a state-wide virtual conference in Spring 2017 on a relevant topic of the participant’s choice.
• Collaborate with network members to move forward shared goals beyond the pilot year.
• Contribute a summary of their activities and other content as needed for any post-pilot year action outputs, which may include production of policy advocacy or white papers, proposals for on-going network collaboration beyond pilot year, and a final report of completed pilot network activities.
We offer a stipend of $1000 for each core UC area team participant who completes the above.
By fall 2017, we anticipate that participants in the pilot network from across the UC and CSU campuses will:
1. Have a shared understanding of where their goals intersect across institutions.
2. Have begun to create the mechanisms, systems, and relationships needed to leverage each other’s resources, knowledge, and networks to achieve those shared goals (i.e., the beginnings of a network).
3. Have assessed what elements of their shared goals may benefit from coordinated state-level educational policy advocacy or resource allocation requests.
4. Feel more supported in developing or furthering their own education initiatives in the local context of their own campuses’ existing sustainability educational and operational strategies.
5. Have developed a robust statement of what culturally contextualized, responsive and sustaining, actionable and transformative climate and sustainability education means for California’s diverse student populations.
