Sustainability is based on a simple principle: Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. Sustainability creates and maintains the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony, that permit fulfilling the social, economic and other requirements of present and future generations. Participants in this summer institute will define sustainability and explore interdisciplinary approaches to the topic in second language classrooms. The focus of the institute will be on developing a knowledge base about sustainability through lectures, networking and field trips to local gardens and Target Field to learn about local sustainability initiatives.
