The Sustainability Curriculum Consortium is pleased to announce
in collaboration with The Foresight Lab
a 4-week online course and practicum for faculty on an especially timely topic:
“Truth, Lies, Peace & Reconciliation:
Teaching and Building Capacity to Deliver an Era of Social Equity & Justice”
Designed and Delivered by The Foresight Lab Regenerative Design Program
This program is a hybrid synchronous and asynchronous short course and co-creative group collaboration for faculty and directors in Sustainability in Higher Education
The work of The Foresight Lab in forging peace & reconciliation outcomes, and guiding the transformation of municipal police departments through the craft of diplomacy is deep and broad. Their work in this domain directly contributes to their Vision of The Regenerative Economy: An engine driving consistent and inspiring, and measurable, gains in social, economic, and ecological well-being. This pioneering effort has led to successful social justice interventions in Ferguson, MO, Charleston, SC, Philadelphia, PA, Atlanta, GA, and Baltimore, MD, among many other communities.
Program description, goals & outcomes:
Through this course, we will
1) Demonstrate how the tools of statecraft, or international diplomacy can transform policing, social justice dislocations, and breakdowns in community equity;
2) Deliver clear pedagogical guidance into how to teach across the social intervention platforms of diplomacy, systemics, and complexity science; and
3) convey to delegates the skills of advanced convening and conflict resolution as classroom tools and skills for next generation leaders.
