Please join us for UofL's Sustainability Roundtable series on alternating Fridays at 11am!
Our guest on February 1st will be Bellarmine University professor and environmental educator Carolyn Waters. Carolyn will facilitate a participatory presentation (in the nature of the research she is currently conducting) that demonstrates several of the projects she has been working on in one tidy bundle of ideas. Specifically, she will touch on: 1) photovoice methodology as a way to engage people outside of the usual sustainability "bubble" in environmental issues, 2) infusing critical pedagogy into environmental science classrooms, and 3) a demonstration of an iNaturalist citizen science project that is a collaboration between students in one of her Bellarmine courses and the Louisville Olmsted Parks Conservancy.
Anyone with an interest in sustainability can give talks at the Sustainability Roundtable and participate in the audience, including faculty, staff, students, practitioners, teachers, government officials, and members of the public. If you would like to give a presentation, or would like to hear a particular speaker, please contact Daniel DeCaro.
