What is Sustainability? The vision for Sustainability at Eastman Chemical is that sustainability is embedded in everything we do. It's about balance. It's about making choices and being part of solutions to do what's right for business and what's right for the planet. Sustainability is a way for us to use our heads, show our hearts, but use our brains. It's an attitude, a state of mind. It is directly linked to innovation.

3BL Media's Lorraine Smith interviews Tom Ewart Managing Director at Network for Business Sustainability at the Ethical Sourcing Forum. He talks about his "bridge role" between academia and business and collaboration among a wide range of groups.
When you think about it, does your coursework perpetuate stories of paternalistic dominance by a few? Do you teach how and what you learned? Given our other many responsibilities, do you find it easiest to choose the same books year after year, rather than explore other possibilities? Is your campus facing criticism by students of color that their voices are not being heard? Do you wonder how sustainability might relate to your course? Finally, do you wonder how the previous questions are connected? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you will find this webinar valuable.
Several years ago, I realized I was using textbooks written by older white men of American/European descent who have a particular viewpoint. As examples, many business strategy books use militaristic terms to describe successful tactics to compete in the marketplace and the accounting textbook I use is a newer edition of the same one I used in my studies almost 30 years ago. In this webinar, I share examples of how I now continually rethink my class material and now explore it from two perspectives: what is and what is possible if we question current paradigms. This approach allows me to cover what my colleagues believe must be covered and creates opportunities to offer a more inclusive and broader perspective. You will have the opportunity to brainstorm with others to identify resources and ways to expand coverage in your courses.

2015 is a landmark year for the United Nations. It’s the 70th year since its founding in 1945, after the most destructive war in history. Without its efforts over the last seven decades, today’s world would be worse off in terms of social justice, human rights, and peace, no matter how qualified those ideals may seem to be currently. But, says UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, the year also looks to be significant in another area: sustainability.
