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.

The Global Survey is focused on establishing the status on the understanding of sustainability and knowledge of the Sustainable Development Goals amongst individuals and professionals; i.e. representatives of companies, politics, academia and civil society in all countries around the world. The aim is to prioritize relevant topics relating to the environment, social issues and the economy in the respective countries and to establish the urgency for action.

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.
