Fostering a Culture of Sustainability: The Role of Cultural Indicators by Doug Worts


This workshop examines how society has institutionalized the notion of culture and placed it within a leisure-time, tourist-oriented and academically-based niche of the world's economy. It also includes a discussion of the Critical Assessment Framework tool for envisioning programs and indicators designed to help foster a culture of sustainability. Participants identify and reflect on assumptions, insights and blind spots in society. Presenters: Douglas Worts, Culture and Sustainability Specialist, World Views Consulting and Dr. Lynne Teather, Professor, Master of Museum Studies Program, University of Toronto.
