A Guide for Applied Sustainability Learning Projects: Advancing sustainability outcomes on campus and in the community
Arizona State University, Portland State University, AASHE
This guide provides a step-by-step framework for how a new or existing applied learning for sustainability program can be systematically designed, built and scaled around two interconnected goals:
- Providing students with exceptional learning experiences in sustainability;
- Contributing to a workable sustainability solution pathway that—when implemented—can lead to significant and lasting sustainability outcomes on campus and/or in the community.
To accomplish this goal, the guide brings together lessons from on-the-ground management of applied learning for sustainability programs with literature related to sustainability science, sustainability pedagogy, change management, and partnership development.
